Center Parcs introduces yoga for children

Friday 11 August, 2006

logoCenter Parcs, the activity-led holiday company, has introduced Yoga Bugs – a yoga programme for children. The Elveden Forest, Suffolk, site has introduced the 45-minute classes to help with kids’ ability to concentrate and relax.

A spokesperson says: “Today’s children are exposed to a very hectic world and a fast pace of life. It may not seem much to frantic parents but day-to-day elements can pace stressed on growing children.

“The Yoga Bugs adventure can help counter these pressures. When children learn techniques for self-health, relaxation and inner fulfilment they can navigate life’s challenges a little easier.”

Sessions include a warm-up, followed by stories and instruction through various postures. Each child will need to be supervised by an adult. They are priced at £5.50, and are for children aged between three and eight years.

Center Parcs operates four villages in the UK, in a forest environment.
