Now in its second year, Achieve was founded and curated by TV Presenter Martin Roberts to help improve happiness, health and wealth, and takes place this weekend at the Passenger Shed in Bristol. Thousands of people are expected to attend the exhibition to watch cookery, visit stands, take part in fitness demonstrations and listen to celebrity and expert speakers. 

YOGADOO founder, Lucy Aston will be discussing how the ancient practice of yoga and meditation can help children become more resilient in a digital world and how YOGADOO has become the leading children's yoga and mindfulness training company in the area in just two years, working with thousands of children and young people every year.

YOGADOO founder Lucy Aston said: “YOGADOO has created a little piece of calm and zen within the wonderfully, busy and exciting Achieve exhibition. There is so much to look around, watch, take part in and absorb, but sometimes it’s nice to have a place to reflect on what you’ve experienced and learnt.”
