Each part of the journey brings joys and challenges as a children grows into a young adults with their family by their side. The demands of day to day life sometimes make it difficult to connect, communicate and feel heard. This retreat is an opportunity to take time with your child to connect, play, learn, experience new things, and BE together.
We use yoga, guided meditation, and playful activities to facilitate connection. We know that soulful interaction with others is enhanced with self knowledge and love. Activities and yoga classes for each day are designed around themes such as Self Love, Courage, Patience, and Honesty. Together we will explore the terrain of parent/child relationships, connection to Mother Nature, and the connection we have as Human Beings.
