Thanksgiving Family Yoga Holiday Program

For Children Ages 4-12

Gauri Devi (Marta Shedletsky)
Tuition: $120

While you enjoy free time to practice yoga and relax, your children can experience the ashram 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’ll share stories and legends that illustrate gratitude and many other valuable principles found within the yoga teachings of the yamas and niyamas.

Please note:

  • This program is offered during the adult yoga classes: 8:00am to 10:00am and 4:00pm to 6:00pm.
  • This program is for children ages 4-12. Parents/adults must register separately for our Yoga Vacation Program. Children under 4 are also welcome, and must be accompanied by a parent to the sessions. Children 13+ are welcome to assist with Karma Yoga and crafts and will be encouraged to participate in at least one adult yoga class per day.
  • The $120 tuition is a one-time fee for each child participating in the program and includes snacks and supplies. Children may attend any or all sessions of the program for this fee.
  • Please register for this program at the same time you register for the adult program(s) you will be attending. It is required that your children are registered prior to arriving at the ashram so staff can prepare for the correct number of children.

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.
