Fenella Lindsell
Director & co-founder of YogaBugs
The children’s yoga and yoga teaching specialists

Based in Clapham, South London, Fenella originally hailed from the travel industry and started practicing yoga in 1985 which subsequently led her to train with the British Wheel of Yoga. She has studied Sivanda Yoga and practiced Iyengar, Astanga Vinyasa and Jivamukti yoga.

She has been teaching yoga for 16 years to adults and children and is a Level 3 Yoga Teacher registered with the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs). Fenella has extensive experience in the pre and post natal yoga world and is currently taking part in a project with Queen Charlotte’s Hospital in London to investigate how yoga and complementary therapies can help reduce rising levels of caesarean sections.

YogaBugs for 2.5-7 year olds was founded in 2003 and Yoga’d Up for 8-12 year olds in 2005, and both are the brainchild of Fenella Lindsell who joined forces with co-founder and now sister-in-law, Lara Goodbody to bring the company from dream to reality. Fenella is responsible for the intellectual property of YogaBugs: the writing and updating of the training manuals, daily liaison with course instructors and the organisations responsible for the accreditation of the programmes. Together with Lara, she is involved in structuring the day to day and future developments for YogaBugs Ltd in the UK and overseas.

As well as being involved in running the company, Fenella is actively teaching yoga herself and is passionate about what she does. As well as YogaBugs, she teaches a class of over 60s and those recovering from illness and injury at a GP practice in SW London.

She has attended workshops and yoga days with international yoga teachers both in the United States and in England including: Shiva Rea, David Swenson, Baron Baptiste, Erich Schiffman, Beryl Bender-Birch, Gary Kraftsow, Richard Freeman, Rod Stryker and Aadil Palkhivala. Other workshops have been with John Claxton, Ruth White, Jean Hall, Ursula Schoonraad and John Shirborn.

In addition she has completed the Radiant Child programme with Shakta Kaur Khalsa Levels 1 and 2 and Jodi B Komitors Next Generation Yoga in New York.

Fenella is married to Rob and together they have 3 children plus stepson George, 15, and the original YogaBug!
