Learn how how to lead summer camps and school-based activities (K-8) that creatively integrate physical yoga, social/emotional learning, music, art and environmental education. These fun and engaging activities support the whole child and inspire stewardship for our natural world.

Through exploring techniques of physical yoga, observation, self-reflection, social/emotional skills development, storytelling and simple schoolyard inquiries, teachers, counselors and environmental educators will learn how to cultivate children's innate curiosity and appreciation of their bodies, each other, animal life and other aspects of their natural, daily environment. This foundation provides the motivation and a powerful thematic basis for integrating more cognitive environmental education and natural science curricula. 


"Our boys attended several summer camps last year and this one was by far their favorite. The learned important skills and had a great time!"  — Parent

This course will also examine how our personal wellness is inextricably linked to the health of our environment and for teachers, we will discuss national studies showing how the experiential and conceptual use of environmental education as an integrating concept improves student health and learning in math, science, social studies, and language arts. 


With this innovative, highly experiential and integrated approach to environmental education, meaningful connections between personal and planetary health can be drawn, fostering a lifelong interest in science and increased environmental citizenry and stewardship. 

Open to all - no prerequisites or prior yoga experience necessary.
