Held in our education suite and Earth in Space gallery, this exciting and inspiring space themed yoga session is a great activity for children during the school holidays. Led by Yoga Mike, children will go on an engaging journey through space, whilst learning the fundamental postures in yoga through stories, songs and games.

Yoga is an innovative and engaging way to get children more active. It is challenging, yet accessible to all age groups and has been proven to support concentration, focus and a range of other positive behaviours beyond the session itself.
Yoga Mike is an experienced yoga teacher with a wealth of knowledge in primary schools and has a dedicated focus to improving children’s mental health and well-being across Teesside.

Suitable for children aged 4-12. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Adults are free to watch the workshop or purely relax and enjoy refreshments which will be provided throughout the session.
