Summer camp for kids will teach The Poetry of Yoga

Sunday, July 4, 2010

Beginning Monday, July 12, through Friday, July 16, children from five to eight years old can attend “The Poetry of Yoga Kids Day Camp” at The SweatBox in Shoreline, WA.

“Yoga is one of the best ways for children to integrate physically, emotionally and mentally. We wanted to help kids take this deeper by exploring creativity through language and movement together. The Poetry of Yoga Day Camp will be great exploration of the senses on a number of levels,” said The SweatBox co-owner Laura Culberg.
Beth Shafer explains what campers will learn:
“First we’ll be teaching our campers the basic yoga postures or asanas and some principals of poetry. Then the kids will be encouraged to transform these elements into projects of their choice,” said Beth Shafer, one of the camp founders and manager of The SweatBox.

The campers will then create their own yoga postures, write poems or create art projects that interpret their experience. On the last day of camp, parents, family and friends are invited to an interactive performance created by the campers.

“Kids love yoga because it lets them try new things. They don’t even realize the mental and physical benefits. Lots of children see their parents practicing yoga. Here’s a chance for the kids to find out what that’s all about,” explains Culberg.

The cost of the five-day camp is $165. Daily sessions go from 12:30 until 3:30. Parents should send a snack with their kids. All other materials are included.

The Sweatbox in Shoreline is located at 20019 Aurora Avenue North, Shoreline, WA 98133-3120. To register for the class email Laura. Space is limited and early registrations are advised.
