Summer Camps

Kids ages 3 - 17 get to explore Yoga and Mindfulness this summer in one of the few "relaxing" or "chill" (coined by a past camper) camps in Missoula. We laugh as we make funny new shapes with our bodies and turn yoga into creative games, we play and do all the fun kids things including going to Westside Park, but without chaos and drama, partly thanks to a small group size and continuous focus on communication and real friendship skills throughout our days together.

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.

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