How does it work?
Our pre-recorded virtual YogaBugs classes are delivered in HD and easy to access online. Classes for early years and KS1 are delivered through exciting stories and adventures, keeping children engaged as they act out the story through yoga.
For children in KS2 we deliver the sessions through themes, teaching children about their bodies and what they can achieve through yoga.
Designed bespoke for schools
Classes are interactive with discussion points where the Virtual YogaBugs teacher will pass back to your teacher for the children to answer the questions. Which is why the children remain engaged whilst we enhance their learning experience
