In this gentle, all-levels yoga series, we explore a different kid-friendly nature theme each week with a correlating technique. Themes include animals, outer space, habitats, the four elements, germination, and much more! Immersed in the Arboretum’s natural tranquility, we will use our imaginations to deepen our body’s capacity to heal and strengthen itself while working on our grounding, calming, focus, and concentration. With the goal of building the strength of the Whole Family, everyone is welcome!
In addition to what is offered the during the class, your instructor will provide families with a digital archive of resources so that you can continue your family yoga practice at home.

About the Instructor: Blaire Embrey starting training in dance at 4 years old, thus beginning her foundational practice of movement as healing. After 17 years of dance, she received her Childspace certification, a Feldenkrais based practice, that brings the trainees through their own physical re-birth. Her practice focuses on working with children and their parents by fostering development through play, encouraging this internal Wisdom to develop and bloom from birth. In August of 2019 she completed her 300 hour Shamanic Yoga Certification. Her primary source of education has been through Medicine Wheel trainings and Mastery Trainings in Canada, Mexico, and Peru.
COVID-19 COMPLIANCE: This program has been modified from its original format to comply with COVID-19 safety guidelines. All participants two years old and above are required to wear protective face coverings. Social distancing will be in place throughout the program, arranged by the instructor. Families will have individual sets of supplies so that objects are not shared by different hands. Groups will not exceed 15 participants, and health screenings of all participants (including temperature checks) will be conducted before the beginning of each class.
