Once Upon the Mat
Adele Quittenden, a mum of one, founded 'Once Upon the Mat' in 2018 after her own journey into motherhood and experiences of birth trauma and postnatal depression.
As an enthusiastic yogi who has been practising since the age of twelve, it was Adele's mission to create a company that is fully centred on the mental health and wellbeing of the whole family, from birth to beyond.
As Kent Business Award finalist 2019 for 'Start Up Business' and nominee for Whatson4Kent National Award 2020 for 'Most Loved New Activity' Once Upon the Mat provide baby massage in our ‘Baby Nurture’ class, a multi-sensory development class in ‘Baby Discovery’ and children’s yoga in our ‘Young Yogis’ classes. In addition to these offerings, Adele is a fully qualified postnatal practitioner and can provide support for mothers in their third and fourth trimester, provide positive potty training and baby and toddler reflexology workshops. Adele also provides children's yoga to nursery and schools across Kent.
