Children learn the basic traditional poses in a playful format. We learn without judgment or competition. Our young yogis learn body awareness, build self-esteem, and confidence. Through fun and inspiring activities, children have the opportunity to be creative, to be themselves, and to feel good about themselves. They learn to focus visual and auditory attention and to calm physical energy through our centering activities and breathing exercises. They also learn when and how to use these as tools for calming high energies.

Our one hour class includes a variety of fun and playful activities that are all included in our summer camp program. Our week long summer yoga camp classes are scheduled from 9:00 to 11:45 AM. 

Check our "Events" page for occasional "Yoga Camp Day" for your child. These will be scheduled on Saturdays or non school days.

 



 
                              Our 2017 Summit Yoga Summer Camp is June 26-30, 9:00 to 11:45
 
June of 2013 was our first summer camp at our studio location and it was incredibly fun! The first full week out of school was the perfect time to offer you this camp opportunity. Summit Yoga continues this tradition.
