Making a difference from an early age
Mark has made it his mission to inspire 140.000 children to be physically and emotionally active every week. In order to help him on this mission he became CEO of YogaBugs in 2010 when he was asked by founder Fenella Lindsell to take the business forward having previously been her leading franchisee. www.yogabugs.com . YogaBugs was established in 2006 and with a proud and successful history in franchising Mark, decided that the best way to reach his target would be to expand the opportunity across a range of different platforms. In order to do this The Bugs Group was created. www.thebugsgroup.com . Then in 2012, working with doctors, professional footballers, physiotherapists and educators., FootieBugs was created www.footiebugs.com . The Bugs Group is now committed to inspiring children every week to not only be physically active in their chosen activity but also to develop emotionally. All Bugs Group programmes develop core learning skills as well communication and social development.
