Each week over 15,000 children join our yoga-inspired classes. Together we master foundations for life gaining new social, emotional and physical skills.
Our yoga-inspired classes are run nationwide in cities, towns and villages and the class focus changes weekly. There is an extensive term-time programme in nurseries, pre-schools and primary schools gifting children essential learning away from their desks. These run at breakfast and after-school clubs, also during the school day. We go to parties, weddings, festivals, abroad - anywhere there are children!
