Start your day the gibbon way! 


Movement director Sarah Perry will share the basics of gibbon movement and invites you to explore gibbon locomotion, postural shapes, gestures and sound. The class will take place in Grant Museum of Zoology, home to 68,000 creatures from across the world. 

Please wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat. Spaces are free but limited, so book in advance to avoid disappointment. 

This event is part of International Gibbon Day, which aims to increase people’s awareness of gibbons and the threats they face today. Look out for our gibbon-inspired workshops about yoga and creative writing too.
