In line with Government guidance on COVID-19 and the recommendation to avoid gatherings and crowded places, many of our local family days out are looking at closing to the public. For any of the listings on here please check with the venue if it is open or closed before attending.

I am endeavouring to keep the listings as up to date as possible but please check with venues first, thanks for your understanding at this crazy time, Team Mumbler.

Yoga for 6 – 11 years

Thursday 4.15pm – 5pm

We all know how important it is to start good habits when we are young, and yoga has been shown to be extremely useful for school aged children. Our children’s yoga class will be open to 6-11 year-olds, and parents are more than welcome to stay and sit on the sidelines. Physically, it will help your little one become stronger and more flexible, and mentally it will give them a sense of calm and a way of coping with stress. Unfortunate as it might be, stress in primary school students is on the rise, and yoga can give them an outlet for this stress.

Children’s classes are very reasonably priced at £5 per class.
