In these exciting and engaging workshops children will learn some cool Yoga poses through stories, songs and games. We’ll have a new yoga adventure every week in which we’ll be discovering some unseen objects from the museum collection!
Yoga is a great way to get children more active. Challenging, yet accessible to all age groups it 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 who has worked extensively with primary schools across the North East and has a dedicated focus on improving children’s mental health and well-being.
The sessions are held in our spacious Education room which is secure, away from the public and has its own toilet facilities. Children can be dropped off and picked up from there.
Parents can leave children with facilitators for the duration of the workshop. Yoga Mike and a first aid trained member of museum staff will be present at all times during the sessions.
We are running sessions for two age groups every Thursday starting 22nd July to 26th August.
10:00am – 11:30am ages 5-7
12:30pm – 2:00pm ages 8-11
If siblings wish to attend who are close in age but cross these age groups, we can accommodate this also.
Each week will have a different adventure theme:
22nd July Dinosaur Planet
29th July Australian Outback adventure
5th August Walk Like an Egyptian
12th August Polar bear On Safari
19th August All Around the World
26th August Mystery Theme…. You Decide!
