Family time for connection

We know that you are busy, between work, home life, school and after school activities. There’s a whole lot happening week to week to keep track of and with all the bustle, we often lose track of the connection that makes it all worth while. Family yoga is a great time to connect and share with your own family and build healthy traditions that can anchor your week. Check out this article in the Charlotte Observer for more benefits of practicing yoga as a family.

 

Our Family Yoga Circle is each Thursday afternoon 3:45 – 5 pm is the perfect chance come as you are for a laid-back playful circle created especially for families of 1-3 year olds. This is a no pressure environment for families of littles who are looking for a way to joyfully bond with their child and make connections with other families.

“Yoga emphasizes the power of connection; connecting movement with breath, connecting in with the self, and connecting with others.”

Summer Camp: Outer space, inner mind

This past week our garden was full of astronauts, asteroids, aliens, a couple moons and rockets as we used our imaginations to travel to the edges of the solar system. Here are some of our favorite moments with our brilliant buddies.

One of the most delicious moments was making Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Moon Cookies, vegan and non-vegan versions. Yum Yum Yum.

Thanks to our friend Kimmy, we learned some amazing clay sculpting techniques and took home some tiny Pikachus and people!

We used a little paper, oil pastels and scissors to create a shadow puppet laser pointer with the help of a very special facilitator.

Partner poses give us a chance to experience our own strength while supporting our friends, relay races help us work together and recycled boxes make the silliest hats.

 

Some musical scales, asteroid inspection and moon demolition, exploring caves on other planets… all a part of our Summer of Fun here in the garden. Thank you so much for filling our week with imaginative fun, we can’t wait to welcome you again soon.
