And congratulations to Becky Shaw, writer of the winning entry! About Barefoot, she said, "Absolutely brilliant festival, everyone is made to feel welcome. It's like one big family! I went for the first time last year and was 8 months pregnant, I'm now saving up for tickets for this year so I can take my daughter who will be almost one. I have no reservations at all about taking her at such a young age and look forward to taking her for many years to come!"

Happy Little Yogi Tots Barefoot Festival™ 2022

Happy Little Yogi Tots - is a specialist program for toddlers and pre-school children, these sessions give children lifelong tools that they can use again and again. The earlier you can introduce these tools to the children, the more normal it will become for them to focus on their breath and calm their mind.

All of Happy Little Yogi Tots classes are super fun and engaging, this is a light hearted and down to earth session where children learn through games, yoga poses, breathing techniques, mindfulness, sound and much much more!

Happy Little Yogi Tots can’t wait to meet you all at Barefoot Festival! Love and Light, Suzie
