For girls in Grades K-6 with their "moms" or other adult female role model
Join us for our monthly Mom & Daughter retreats designed to foster mutual respect, positive communication, and trust between moms (or any adult female role model) and daughter as we learn yoga techniques and have a ton of fun! Activities will vary for each retreat but involve individual and partner yoga practices, self-care / restorative practices, breathwork, themed discussions, games and other and many healthy, practical and peaceful ideas to practice at home, together. No yoga experience necessary.
Seeds of Wisdom Program
A one-time registration of $10 per child will include membership in our unique Seeds of Wisdom program, designed to cultivate mindful living and continued learning. Each retreat will focus on a different theme such as peace, truthfulness, or balance and moderation, representing yoga's universal principles of living mindfully in the world. Students will be led in activities designed to provide practice and understanding of the theme of the day. At the end of each retreat, your child/ren will earn a unique collectable pin to celebrate their new understanding. We encourage children to affix their pins onto their yoga mat bag which is also included in the one-time registration fee.
What to Bring / Wear:
It is recommended that you bring your own yoga mat to prevent the spread of germs, as well as a water bottle with a spouted lid. Note that we do have public mats available for use and some also for sale for as little as $10. Dress for movement.
What You're Saying:
"Both Lena and I really liked the retreat. What a wonderful way to make time to enjoy time together and with friends. We were both very relaxed after having learned some great yoga poses. We were both nervous going in to it as we don't have much experience with it. Michelle did an incredible job with the whole event!" ~ L. Nicholson
"This was such a great yoga and mom/daughter bonding experience...esp for us, who are completely new to yoga. Numerous times my daughter told me, "mom, this is so fun!" ;)
"My daughter is so excited. All day Sunday, she kept saying, “This class was MADE for me!!!” ~ S.C.
"Thank you so much for creating the space for this special one on one time, so hard to find these days. We had a wonderful time and look forward to the next retreat!"
