YOGADOO GOES UNDER THE SEA FOR EARTH DAY
There is something beautifully enchanting, calming and meditative about watching fish swim through the ocean. We are delighted to announce that award-winning children's yoga company YOGADOO is teaming up with Bristol Aquarium for a very special children's yoga class with a difference.
To celebrate Earth Day on Sunday April 22nd, specialist children's yoga teacher and founder of YOGADOO, Lucy Aston will be running a peaceful and calming class in front of a large tropical marine display with floor to ceiling windows at the aquarium. Children will learn fish and ocean inspired yoga poses as they watch Unicorn Tangs, Oriental Sweetlips, Honeycomb Moray Eels, Long Horned Cowfish, Bamboo Banded Cat Sharks, and a Californian Leopard Shark swim before their very eyes. Children will also be led into gentle relaxation, learning some simple breathing techniques as we appreciate the wonders of the ocean on our planet.
Spaces are limited to 12 children.

YOGADOO founder Lucy Aston said: "I really can't think of a more perfect place to have a children's yoga class. To be inspired and energised by our beautiful ocean, to watch the fish swimming and playing in the clear waters has an almost meditative affect. Our first ever yoga class at the Aquarium is to celebrate Earth Day, and our children are increasingly aware of the affects of their actions on our planet, especially with programmes such as David Attenborough's Blue Planet. Children will learn lots of fish-themed yoga poses, to stretch and balance their bodies. And work together in some group work as well as enjoying lots of calm, relaxation time as we take lots of deep breaths and watch the fish play."
