Summer Camps

Yoga, Mindfulness and Music Summer Camps
Week-long summer day camps for kids ages 3 - 11

Yoga and mindfulness through fun and engaging movement, activities, games and art - designed just for kids!  

In yoga we breathe (pranayama) in imaginative ways to harness the energy of our emotions, cool us down (literally and figuratively!) and clear our minds.  We'll engage in the asanas (yoga poses) through stories, obstacle courses and games.  Each pose offers an energy we can use in daily life:  warrior or volcano to feel strong (and in control of this strength) and confident; sloth or sleeping butterfly or flower to feel peaceful;  river (forward flow) to learn how to "go with the flow" and be flexible.  

Mindfulness, self-awareness and emotional empowerment are woven into all that we do.  Kids learn to recognize feelings and needs and begin articulating them.  By studying social patterns and dramas, kids can begin to request what they want directly and problem solve to find solutions that work for everybody in our community.  We open our hearts and clarify our needs through meditation, yoga, breathing and community.  We practice the art of creating a respectful, peaceful, kind and conscious environment.  

The flow and heart soothing rhythms of music will permeate each camp.  On the full day camps, the kids get to spend the morning with Callie Monroe who has been teaching music to kids in Missoula for many years.  Yoga blends into songs and rhythm sweetly the rest of the time and in the half day camps.  We will learn songs, play with rhythm, dance to all sorts of music and make some homemade instruments. 

Organic snacks, non-chemical cleaners and small group sizes in a cozy, calm environment.
