YOGADOO founder, Lucy Aston and TV Presenter Martin Roberts (see below) will be performing a very special children’s yoga story time at this weekend’s Achieve event at the Passenger Shed, in Bristol. (13/14 October)

Children under 16 get in free to the exhibition and the yoga story time sessions will take place in the YOGADOO Zen Den, once a day, at 3:30pm on Saturday, and 10:30am on Sunday. Martin will be reading from “Sadsville” the book he has written to help children to deal with emotions in a digital world, whilst Lucy will lead a children’s yoga flow inspired by the book, featuring some of the characters from the story.

Sadsville tells the story of a town where everyone is sad. The hero of the book, Herman and his sidekick Sandi try to solve the mystery and turn Sadsville into a happy place? The story looks at sadness and how people talk about their emotions. Martin’s charity, the Martin Roberts foundation, aims to give a copy of the book to every child in year 5 and 6 in local educational authority areas across the country.

The YOGADOO Zen Den will be open from 9am-5:30pm each day as a place to escape the crowds, to relax and unwind. Booking is essential for this session, spaces are limited. (Sign up at the Zen Den from 9am)
