Summer Camps

Yoga and Mindfulness Summer Camps

Week-long summer camps for kids ages 3 - 11!

Explore Yoga and Mindfulness on the mat, and in "real time" this summer in one of the few "relaxing" or "chill" (coined by a past camper) camps in Missoula.


All summer camps include Yoga and Mindfulness at the core: Stretching, strengthening, breathing, balance, meditation practice, emotional wisdom and “real-time” effective social skills.

In addition, each camp includes music, singing and dancing, to let our minds rest and engage our souls and our inner muse; art as a way to engage the senses and explore yoga in more formats; and nature exploration as a way to connect with the original source of stillness and peace. We will go to our neighboring park(s) and may travel via city bus to the Rattlesnake forest (the preschool camp will not travel)

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. Yoga poses can also be greatly beneficial for children who participate in sports as it increases body/mind connection, balance, strength, focus and more.

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.

We laugh as we make funny new shapes with our bodies and turn yoga into creative games, we play, make art, and do all the fun kids things, 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.

Organic snacks and small group sizes in a cozy, calm environment.

Want a FULL DAY camp?

We are teaming up with the neighboring parkour gym, Unparalleled Movement, to offer a Parkour Afternoon Camp. The practice of parkour is an exciting complement to yoga as a way to practice bravery and balance in real time.

Each camp (except the preschool camp the week of June 29) will have the option of an afternoon component at Unparalleled Movement. This is available for kids ages 5 and older only. If you want this option for your child, you will be able to sign up on their website (link coming soon!).

Parkour Afternoon Camps at Unparalleled Movement:

  • Available every week Peaceful Heart Yoga has a camp (except the preschool camp)
  • Monday through Friday, 12:30pm - 3:00pm.
  • The kids who choose this option will eat lunch after our yoga camp (from 12:00 to 12:30) while the other children are being picked up, then Miss Jess will walk them over to the parkour studio.
  • The teachers at Unparalleled Movement will teach a 30 minute parkour lesson at the start of the afternoon camp and then the children will have free movement time to explore the content of the lesson and experiment with various parkour techniques with the teachers still available to guide and answer questions.
  • They have an aftercare option until 4:00pm for an additional $10 per day.
  • Available for kids 5 and older only.
  • Cost: $100 per week
