Yoga is a wonderful way to open your child to the awareness of their place in the world.  Each class will focus on a lesson or theme and will include creative yoga flow, breath work, games, stories, music, partner/group activities, visualization and relaxation.  This week's theme is A Galaxy Far, Far Away (yep, Star Wars...)! Through yoga, your child will develop strength, flexibility, self-confidence, balance, coordination, focus and discover the ability to feel calm.  Ms. Brandon's playful, gentle style allows children to find a personal connection to their yoga practice.

 

Instructor: Ms. Brandon Hudson, RCYT, E-RYT, MAT, is a yoga teacher, children’s yoga teacher, a children’s yoga teacher trainer, and a trained yoga therapist that has over 15 years' experience working with both children and adults.

*Magnificent Mosaics One spot left!

Campers will create a tile mosaic exploring the use of color and working on a self-chosen subject. Mosaics will be carefully planned, then students will learn to adhere tile and grout. Completed projects will be wonderful to display or use as trivets for the kitchen.  They also make great gifts!!!
