Over 25,000 early learners across the country will roll out their yoga mats for a very worthy cause on Tuesday 7 April, World Health Day. 

 

Little Rockers Radio and the Alannah and Madeline Foundation are joining forces to invite early learning centres, family day care services, preschools and families all around Australia to help build a fairer, healthier world by hosting a Buddy Yoga Class at 10 am on 7 April, to raise money for the Buddy Bag program which backpacks full of basic, essential items for vulnerable children in emergency accommodation.

 

Alannah and Madeline Foundation representative, Lynne Kearney, said the Foundation is “extremely grateful” for the support. 

 

Designed to foster compassion, gratitude and strength in our early learners, this Biggest Ever Buddy Yoga get-together will lead children through an age appropriate enchanted yoga sequence and soothing meditation.

 

“We’re responding to the WHO objectives by running a healthy campaign that supports children in need and are anticipating well over 25,000 children will take part,” Sarah Morrissey, founder of social enterprise, Little Rockers Radio said, describing the initiative as “a really cute, healthy way to make an impact!”

 

Travel and lifestyle blogger Jade from @mumwithwings will act as head yogi for the initiative. 

 

Registrations are now open here, and cost $10 for individuals and $25 for services.
