Calling all Paleontologists! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk like a Stegosaurus, have a snack with a Triceratops, fly with Pteranodon, and dig up the bones of the mighty Diplodocus?
Join us as we gather all of our gear for a Dinosaur Yoga adventure! Traveling around the world, we’ll discover some of the fiercest animals that roamed the earth millions of years ago and snack alongside our favorite Herbivores. We’ll jump into the sand pits and dig up dinosaur bones, help baby dinosaurs hatch from their eggs and create never before seen dino yoga poses, all while keeping our eyes peeled for the most powerful of all dinosaurs, the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex!
