~ Family Yoga & Kids Yoga Camp 2020

Family Yoga

“Family yoga is a beautiful zoo – Truman really loved it.” ~ Sarah S.

Family yoga is yoga for the whole family! This is a fun lighthearted experience of moving together with joy and delight. We cultivate compassion and connection in the family through yoga practice. We play yoga games, act out poses, learn sequences, and we practice relaxation and meditation. ALL ages are very welcome, infants, teens, college kids, aunts, uncles thru grandparents, we tailor the class to the abilities and developmental stages of those attending. We celebrate everybody and the family as a whole. Only 1 person in the family needs to “sign up” and pay, everyone else is included. You may purchase a single class for $16, or use a class on your 4 or 8 class pass, or your monthly membership. Bring the family for some wholehearted yoga fun.

Kids’ Yoga Camp! 

A Summer Day Camp in Harpswell, Maine.

Fun, fitness, and relaxation abound at yoga camp. Seeing the whole of ourselves while we interact with our community and our natural world is the high aim. Each day, we joyfully learn about ourselves through a complete yoga class. We also learn about each other and the natural world through yoga-inspired art, crafts, games, and activities.  Using various yoga tools throughout the day, we cultivate peace and we build flexibility and strength.

With the 8 limbs of classical yoga serving as a guide, we explore daily themes such as non-violence, truthfulness, kindness, self-study, moderation, self-care, contentment, concentration, awareness, and skillfulness in energy management. We learn yoga postures and how to work well with our own body’s strengths and limitations.

We practice relaxing and learn varied ways to meditate. We play games of cooperation and enjoy crafts that reveal our inner world. We celebrate our uniqueness and share the joy of our connection. We take as much of this practice outside as possible and enjoy the fresh air of summer in Maine. Your kids will feel strong, relaxed, and grounded, and best of all they will leave with yoga tools they can use to know themselves and to build their own sense of wellbeing.

Kids, celebrate yourself with the fun, fitness, and relaxation of Yoga Camp!

Yoga Camp is for children ages 6-12.

Camp runs from 8:30am-4pm M-F.

Cost is $225 per week and includes all supplies. This covers all of our expenses. If the cost is prohibitive, we have a limited number of spots available for $125/week. These spots are made possible through generous donations made by Jai Yoga students and staff. We believe yoga is a wonderful life tool that all should have access to. Please contact Jen to sign up using a scholarship.

We recommend that campers have their own yoga mat. If you need a mat, we have mats to borrow for free or to purchase, for $10.
