Greetings from the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Farm in Grass Valley, CA! We pray that this message finds you happy, healthy, and peaceful, and gearing up for a fun summer!
The Yoga Farm would like to invite your children to the Children's Yoga Camp from July 21 - 31, 2012.
As usual, our camp includes 2 daily yoga asana classes, special Children satsang with a short meditation, chanting, storytelling and Yoga Philosophy. Daily swimming in the pond, participating in outside games and play time, and enjoying trips to the beautiful and refreshing Yuba River.
We have some new activities added to this year's camp like nature studies, hikes, painting, sketching, and even a drama production with music and costume preparation. Karma Yoga will be introduced to the campers, including chores around the farm, the garden and our farm animals.
Another new addition this year is that we will offer positions as Junior Counselors. If your child is 15 years old and has been to the Kids Camp before, please contact us for more information.
Experienced Sivananda yoga teachers lead a Children's Yoga Camp every summer for youth aged 7-14. Children will benefit from daily yoga and breathing exercises combined with meditation practice, learning the value of karma yoga (selfless service), and satsang just for kids followed by singing and inspiring stories. There will also be plenty of time for swimming, fun and games, and special activities outside the Yoga Farm.
Help your child's evolution by helping create a solid foundation of peaceful, healthy living for them.
