WHERE THE WILD THINGS OM
In her first workshop WHERE THE WILD THINGS OM (for children) the class will begin with some animal songs and dances then explore different animal themed poses in connection to some of the songs. Continuing with some games using the animal poses to connect learning to movements. Finally, the children will learn some breathing exercises to help calm down and find stillness in their body.
Her second offering (all ages) is YOGA HIKING a chance to escape from the festival through a guided hiking experience and a pause for a break with a yoga flow. Aimed at providing an opportunity for trust, self-exploration, relaxation, and oneness to the natural environment for all participants. An all levels vinyasa flow will take place on a clear space with a stunning view to help us tune into our own breath and all that surrounds us. The class will conclude with a guided nature-themed meditation to recharge for the rest of the festival.
Workshops 2 and 3 will be posted next week.
