Balanced Butterfly Yoga & Art

Saturday, September 30, 2:30-4 pm

$15 per child  (Ages 5 and up)

This yoga & art class is the perfect activity for kids who love to move and create! The class includes a yoga session, where we’ll play with poses, practice breathing exercises, and learn how to balance and fully relax our bodies. We’ll finish with a yoga-inspired butterfly project for you to take home as a beautiful reminder to continue your yoga practice! We’ll cut out and decorate our butterflies, then add weight to their wings so they can balance on your finger, making them look as though they’re flying! Feel free to bring your own yoga mat or towel if you have one. Class will be lead by special guest instructors Ciara and Abby. Ciara is an elementary school teacher and a certified kids & adult yoga instructor. Abby is a certified family yoga instructor and is trained to teach yoga for children with special needs. Both love to share the gift of yoga with children of all ages! REGISTER HERE
