Robots and Chess in the Garden

We’ve opened up our garden to IWICA, Thailand’s premier Chess and Robotics school for a fun filled week of Tech camp April 23-27.

We believe in hands-on multifaceted approaches to learning and know that not every child is the same. So, while arts and yoga may be right up your child’s alley, chess and robotics offers another approach to the interest based activities we love sharing with our community. IWICA provides unique opportunities for youngsters to develop math and science skills while gleaning programming experience that is timely and fun.

Mindful Moments

What happens when you mix a camping festival + one big picnic mat + Kru Yok + new friends?

 

You get magic in the form of breath and conscious interaction, strength and flexibility with some of our favorite dynamic asanas, calmness and coolness with rainbow scarf meditations.

These little yogis are living proof that yoga doesn’t require individual mats, fancy stretch pants or expert positioning. Each of us are on a unique and precious journey. When we take time to arrive into the living moment of now, we create the space to see and be seen. We allow ourselves the opportunity to grow.

 

Thanks East Meets West for having us and allowing us the chance to share our imaginations and hearts with you! 

Yoga off the mat

One of our very first students at Kids Yoga Garden was a fantastic creator by the name of Rada Volodina. Back when she was at the Yoga Garden, she taught her fellow students how to sketch and shade, the basics of human anatomy and even completed some amazing sketches of her teachers.

Well, Rada has moved back to Bangkok and now is starting her very own Youtube channel where she shares her love for the art world. We love the first two episodes and are so excited to see her sharing her passion with an ever growing audience.

Thanks Rada for continuing to teach us even from a distance, we can’t wait to see what you do next!

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.
