The Yoga Zoo Challenge is the perfect way to introduce little ones to children's yoga and mindfulness.

Nursery-aged children will have heaps of fun as they join Yoga Dog on his zoo adventure, learning about different animals and copying some of their simple, animal-themed yoga poses.

Taking place for the entire week from 1 July - choose the best day to run your Yoga Zoo Challenge, and raise money to help keep children safe. Why not make your classroom feel even more like a zoo and ask kids to come dressed as their favourite animal?

Why children's yoga?

Children's yoga encourages little ones to get active, helping them build muscle strength and improve their motor skills. Alongside that, yoga and mindfulness can help with emotional wellbeing, resilience and behaviour.
