While you enjoy free time to practice yoga and relax, your children can experience the Yoga Retreat through a wide range of activities and classes designed specifically for them. Led by beloved and creative teachers, children will be introduced to yoga through short asana classes, chanting, crafts, storytelling, lots of games and fun, and Karma Yoga (service/pitching in to the ashram community). We will share stories of Hanukkah, Christmas, and the life of Swami Vishnudevananda. Come make new friends, celebrate Swami Vishnu’s birthday, and ring in the New Year with us. This program is offered during the adult Asana & Pranayama classes. The morning session meets from 7:55 am – 9:55am and the afternoon session meets from 3:55pm – 5:55pm. Drop-off and pick-up at the Annapurna Devi House.
This program is for children ages 4-12. Parents/adults register separately for our Yoga Vacation Program.. Children under 4 are most welcome, and must be accompanied by a parent. Children 13+ are welcome to assist with Karma Yoga and crafts and will be encouraged to participate in at least one adult class per day.
Please note: The $75 tuition is a one-time fee for each child participating in the program. Children may attend any or all sessions of the program for this fee.
What to bring, special needs & other planning: Please have children bring at least one pair of closed-toe shoes and a great book to read to replace media play. See the Guest Information tab below for additional information.
