With over 20 years of experience, ZooLab Animal Therapy sessions aim to help stimulate and promote your mental wellbeing. 

Animal Armchair Aerobics encourages gentle exercise from the comfort of a chair with ZooLab animals. Guided by your ZooLab Ranger and host of ZooLab animals, this workshop stimulates activity through animal-inspired chair-based movement. You'll also learn interesting, modern and historical facts about the animals you meet on the day.

The cost of taking part is subsidised, thanks to our funders The Masonic Charitable Foundation and Yorkshire Building Society.

Price: £5 per participant
