I am an inclusion support worker with over 20 years’ experience. The children I work with have diverse learning needs, and I am always looking for new ways to help them regulate, and techniques that have a calming effect in the noise filled day care environment.
Alysse from Young Yoga introduced me to meditate with Friends and I was amazed at the effect it had on the children in my care.
Using children’s voices for meditation instantly gains the attention of children who otherwise would not listen. They are drawn to the sound of their peers, almost like a friend talking to them.
I have watched children who have trouble settling, engage in this mediation for over 10 minutes.
This is why I recommend Meditate with friends to fellow Educators, the parents I work with and professionals within the Inclusion support community.

“Lucky Sophie to be involved in this initiative! She has been doing yoga with Alysse since she was 3 🥰 & is now helping Alysse with her new APP Meditate With Friends. It is due to launch in around two weeks but you can get a sneak peak of Sophie’s bedtime meditation on meditatewithfriends.com.au. She recorded this with Alysse when she was SIX. Her voice sounds so sweet and little! Glad to have this snapshot in time. Can’t wait to hear the other meditations recorded just a few months ago 🙌🏻 This app is going to be amazing, so much love and effort has gone into it. This is such important work ❤️❤️❤️.”
“Oh my goodness I love it!!! It’s awesome. I love hearing the innocence of a child’s voice in this meditation.”
“I tried one of the meditations with Ollie the other night, he was absolutely exhausted. He loves the Sophie’s meditation so much, actually knows it off by heart as he now recites it in the car haha 💙 you should see how much his face lights up, bless. Thank you for sharing this with us 🙏🏻💖”
“Just listened to the meditation with my kids. It’s amazing, even I felt relaxed. I am grateful that my daughter is part of it and now a Young Meditator. Super excited to see the world shifting due to this work. “
“Last night my daughter had a friend from school attempt a sleep over with us. The friend got anxious so I used your essential oils on her. Now that I have the meditation I would so use it!!! Anonymous parent.”
