These OUTDOOR nature education classes are for Explorers (kids aged 2-7) and a "Guide" (a parent, teen relative or babysitter).
Susan blends the Tinkergarten curriculum with a mixture of music, mindfulness, a creature / theme, and activity.
Classes start Sunday, October 1 and continue through November 19, 2023

SUNDAY: FAMILY YOGA
In these classes, we will find ease with breathing, learn some new body language, and practice "acro yoga" partnering with humans of all sizes.
ALL AGES AND FAMILIES WELCOME
Classes will be held outdoors unless it's super-crazy weather. Yoga is about breathing and moving in the present moment, and we can practice that wet or dry.

Susan loves arm extensions as a quick, physical break. Here, she teaches an easy, medium and difficult variation to bring more blood to your brain and body for days when you are sitting too much (which is to say, most days).
“Caring for myself is
not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation,
and that is an act of political warfare.”
