bringing mindfulness to children

I am Lena, a creator of The Mindful Steps. I help children to improve their mental health and well-being with the tools of mindfulness and mindset. My approach is based on  science about the brain and engaging mindful practices.

I work with families and schools. I deliver programmes and guided meditations that help children to develop their self-esteem, resilience and positive mindset. My experience as a school teacher, yoga instructor for children and mindfulness teacher has shaped up my passion and delivery.

My work is focused on guiding children to take ‘mindful steps’ for building their character and connection with themselves and others.



What They Say


“I loved working with Lena. She’s so so kind and thoughtful, and great with children. Her calm but fun demeanor worked really well to put my 7 year old son at ease. We took part in meditation sessions and some 1:1 sessions too. One of the things I really love about Lena is that she really listens, both to the needs of the child and the parent. An absolute superstar!”

Diane, mum of Oscar

My children loved Lena’s meditation, in such crazy times it’s really lovely to just pause, take a breath and relax for a moment. Our kids are under so much pressure with all the changes, it’s good to do something a bit different and thought provoking, thanks for giving us access to this Lena!”
