Yoga Camp at Heartwood Retreat Center gives kids a chance to spread out and enjoy both an indoor and outdoor experiences on our beautiful grounds with art, movement, and creative games designed to explore the natural world and as we explore ways to become our healthiest selves. Students learn age appropriate yoga and meditation in ways that are anything but dull, including aerial yoga, partner yoga, wet and wild yoga (outside under sprinklers) blindfolded yoga and more. Students work on creative, mindful art projects including mandala making, dream-catchers, henna painting, expressive journaling and more. They learn about concepts such as crystal grids, reiki, and other methods of self-knowing, trusting their instincts, choosing kindness, or self-calming to help kids deal with the negative or hurtful influences they may run up against.
. Camp activities center on daily themes such as personal health, organic eating, environmental awareness, respect for others, exploring positive ways to deal with conflict and stress, and building a self respect and a positive self identity.
