Yoga Playtime is about exploring stories with our bodies! Go on an adventure through the jungle, fly with the butterflies, plant a seed and grow into a tree, go on a Warrior’s journey, climb a Mountain, or become a lion!
Each 45 minute class will have the option of exploring Yoga poses, simple breathing exercises, yoga colouring pages, listening to music and singing songs, telling stories, playing games, and opportunities to share and teach each other new things. The activities will be dependent on the needs of the students, collectively and individually, each day.
The focus will be on sharing, learning, working as a team, supporting each other, and of course, having FUN!
Colleen began practicing yoga over a decade ago and within the practice found a path of lifelong learning and growth. She is also an outdoor educator who has taught wilderness skills and rock climbing for the last 11 years. She is particularly interested in bringing the practice of yoga to as many people as possible and bringing yoga off the mat, finding the meditative aspects in and connection to all areas of life. She is a 300-hour trained teacher through Shanti Yoga in Nelson, where she also teaches weekly classes. Her classes always include focused pranayama and intentional sequencing with attention to anatomy and alignment for a safe, balanced practice. She is excited to begin teaching in the community!

A wonderful way to stretch out and rebalance after a long week. Suitable for all levels.
