Imagine a class that allows kids to explore their natural ability to move and stretch in a way that places the focus on what you feel in a yoga pose. Kids can use their imagination when sounding or moving like the animal the pose looks like such as meows during cat pose or flapping their wings in butterfly. Breathing exercises are taught to help kids cope with the pressures of school and cultivate the ability to be calm when stress arises. Through mindful movement and yoga related games kids will create a healthy relationship with their body that increases confidence, encourages an open heart and a positive attitude. We want you to share this experience with your child ages 5-10; cost for parent and child is $10 and each additional child is $5.00. This class will be offered twice a month.

Meditation: New Moon Women’s Circle
Monthly Event: Check MINDBODY or FB for date/time
Magic happens when women gather in circles to share what’s really going on inside their hearts. As part of The Global Sisterhood movement, every new moon, thousands of women in 80+ countries gather in Sister Circles to heal themselves, uplift others, and transform the world. Join our local chapter of The Global Sisterhood at Pacific Yew Yoga for our Sister Circle and Meditation. Each new moon has a theme for transformation, sisterhood, and healing. We also take this time to plant seeds of intention for the current moon cycle.
What to Expect: the gathering events include a open heart meditation followed by singing bowls, intention setting for our goals or manifestations, and sharing time. Or whatever we feel called to do! We may sing, we may dance, we’ll most likely laugh a lot and even cry a little. You never know when you get a group of Wild Women together. The energy will be electric and we would LOVE for you to be there. Whether you’ve attended a women’s circle before, or this is your first time, we welcome you to join. No previous meditation or women’s circle experience is needed. Come exactly as you are.
Please dress comfortably as we will be sitting on the floor.
Feel free to bring something to add to our altar, that we will be building together. (this could be a flower, crystal, feather, candle or anything from your cultural traditions)
This is a FREE event. LOVE DONATIONS will be accepted to honor our sacred space, (this helps to pay for the studio, and other things purchased for the circle) No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
