Parents and Kids Yoga - Wisdom of Coming Together as One Family

Parenting is one of the hardest jobs we will ever have. Our kids don’t come with an instruction manual. You may want to parent differently but don’t know how or what approach you should use. You are not alone! A lot of parents feel this way. But there is hope! This workshop will show you how to build a strong relationship with your child (age 5-12).

In this workshop series we will explore ways to support ourselves and our young children.

 

  • Share what surprised you about your journey into parenthood

  • Find community of like-minded families because it takes a village

  • Set intentions and goals for your family and parenting

  • Learn tools and strategies to serve you for the rest of your parenting journey.

  • Learn how to take skills from your yoga practice into your everyday life and parenting.

  • Have a memorable time with your child through Yoga & bonding exercises.
