Yoga Benefits Camp

This week-long journey is crafted to bring out the courage and creativity in your child each day. YB summer camp focuses on the whole child: brain, body, and breath. Our activities enrich by celebrating our individuality through the use of positive, colorful imagery, art projects, exploring nature, and using our senses to get present and enjoy nourishing foods that strengthen minds and bodies. The magic of teamwork comes together when we integrate each day with partner poses, breakdown big concepts like trust and love for young students.
