  • How to enhance learning with storytelling, music, art projects, and more

  • Yoga poses and breath work for kids - the how and the why

In addition, participants will get the chance to take part in a real Children’s Yoga Class to witness the tools in action.  This weekend will be filled with a balance of active learning, group creation, and contemplative practices. We will play, laugh, and explore our way through each day!
