Today the children practise the very basic principles of Yoga & Mindfulness.

The session ends with a short guided relaxation where the children are invited to lie down and relax whilst going on an imaginary journey under the sea, visiting lots of different sea creatures and enjoying the peace and stillness of the ocean.
