Jai Thep

Chiang Mai is a melting pot for creativity that has earned itself the reputation of the cultural and arts center of Thailand. So, it seems fitting that Chiang Mai now also boasts a 3 day music and arts festival in the green mountainous jungle of Samoeng (about 45 min from the Old City). Along with international music acts and art installations there was also a stacked lineup of wellness workshops hosted by some of Chiang Mai’s prominent healing artists. There were acro yoga workshops, dance mandala, reiki, healing sound bowls, hip hop wellness and of course a little dash of kid’s yoga.

We loved leading our yoga classes under a fabulous bamboo circus big top and sharing partner poses, meditation and laughter.

Thanks for having us Jai Thep, we can’t wait to be a part of your next grand celebration of imaginative living.

Children’s Day in Thailand

Children's Day

 

“Children are the future of the nation, if the children are intelligent, the country will be prosperous.”

-Thai saying

 

If you live in Thailand, you probably already know that this is a wonderful place to be a kid. Ample sun for expanding energy and growth, abundant agriculture of tropical fruits and veggies, not to mention the world renowned nature of the “Land of Smiles.”

But even further, Thailand nurtures children and acknowledges their importance as the future of their country.  In 1955 the country established National Children’s Day to celebrate the significant role of their children. From Northern Thailand to the Southern Peninsula, the second Saturday of the month is saved for activities that fill their youth with joy.

At Kids Yoga Garden, we are committed to expanding the physical, mental and emotional intelligence of children through awareness and sensory-based creative activities. We love serving the mind, body and souls of our community by creating a nurturing environment to grow.

This year we will join the festivities with a FREE Children’s Day BBQ Potluck in our garden this Saturday, January 13th from 11 am – 2 pm. We will be joined by some of our favorite teachers, facilitators and families to welcome you to our space and some super special activities.

 

Workshops will include:

+ Arts and Crafts

+ Yoga Games

+ Tepee construction

+ Chess and Robotics

+ Circus skills

 

All Day enjoy:

+ BBQ (w/ veggie and vegetarian options)

+ s’more roasting

+ face painting

+ community

 

 

 

Holiday Craft Camp

Let’s use less cash and more creativity this holiday season! Expose your children to the magic of their own imagination as we gather to create gifts, cards and movements that carry the cheer of the season with a smaller ecological footprint.

This craft camp will include tutorials on how to make 100% natural soap, DIY gift wrap, recycled snow globes, ornaments, cider, cookies in a jar and much more!

As always there will also be plenty of movement by the way of yoga, dancing and even Thai boxing. We will exercise our inner performers with drama, music and storytelling activities incorporating different traditions from around the globe.

And we’ll round it all off with a celebration on the final day!

Ages 3 -12 welcome

A day at the market

Our homeschool group has been hard at work developing their practical math skills, including estimation, inventory and calculations. So this past weekend, some of the homeschool learners joined with Nic’s Restaurant to take part in the Kid’s Flea Market at their 6th Anniversary celebration. The girls sold a plethora of second-hand items from home including books, games, old toys and clothes with some help from parents.

The day was full of negotiations, laughter and lots of learning (next time we will bring a bigger tarp, and shoes that can get muddy!) By the end of the day our hands were lighter and wallets a bit fatter. We are super proud of our young entrepreneurs and excited for our next opportunities to practice these skills. Already this week there has been talk of halloween costume creation, where to shop for materials and how to get it to market! Excellent enthusiasm captured by one of our garden photographer friends.
