Kismet Kid Power Yoga

August 15 • 9-10:30am
Catawba Studio
with Chiara McCarthy

Join the circle: a safe, creative environment where everyone is invited to show up exactly as they are and be themselves. Together we will learn the art of mindfulness by exploring different mindful meditation practices. We will cultivate a place where we can pause, relax and open up to our true self, connecting mind, body and heart and relaxing into our wholeness of being.

In addition to connecting with ourselves through a healing yoga flow we are building friendships and self esteem, promoting self confidence and constructing our individual tool belts of coping skills to “surf the waves of life”.
In this circle, we build inner and outer strength, increase flexibility (in both ways that it can mean!) and improve balance (again, internally and externally!), in this non-competitive but rather collaborative environment .

When we’re not meditating or flowing with our breath, we may be dancing, journaling, creating art and certainly connecting in insightful conversation. Join the club and develop a new healthy habit!

Workshop Fee:  $25.00 per class includes yoga class, art project, juice and snack (courtesy of Root to Rise cafe).Sign up on KarmaSoft
