July 8 – 12 • 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Bring a filled water bottle, healthy snack and a thin towel to camp each day.
A yoga mat will be provided for each student and they can take it home at the end of the week. Little Yogis camp is designed specifically with the creative and active elementary student in mind. Absolutely no prior experience is necessary! This camp will provide students the opportunity to practice fitness, enhance healthy body awareness and increase strength, flexibility and balance in a fun, non-competitive, artistic environment.
Each class is comprised of three parts. During the first segment, students will explore different yoga poses through games, interactive stories and creative movements. Participants will spend the second part of class studying a different mindfulness technique each day. This segment will end with a short period of quiet and stillness during which students will follow guided relaxations and concentrate on breath work. Yogis will spend the final third of their morning as mindful artists, revisiting the day’s physical yoga practice and meditation experiences through different mediums. Little Yogis is the ultimate multisensory experience! Each afternoon, camp participants will come home with yoga “homework” which has two goals. It will, firstly, emphasize and recap the day’s theme (the physical and meditative practices) and secondly, encourage a dialogue about personal reactions and observations from the morning session between little yogis and a family member or friend. Students are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing that allows them to move freely.
Erin Rogers and Meagan Justice have worked Summer Quest yoga camps for years and enjoy teaching the practice to others.
