Pay What You Wish
Calling all wild things to Smith Playground! Join Grounded Kids Yoga teacher Amanda Hendricks of Blue Banyan Yoga for a special outdoor family yoga class inspired by Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are. Together families will explore this classic story through yoga poses and song. We will practice moving in and out of stillness, explore changing emotions, and close with a Nutshell Kids savasana. Designed for children ages 3 and up and their significant grown ups, this summer time event promises to be a wild rumpus filled with fun, a little ruckus, and some quiet moments too. Ages 3-103. Come play!
