Summer Programming Becomes After School Programming | Madison WI
Starting in October, 8-12 year olds will meet twice per week for 16 weeks of training in leadership and yoga through mindful play. One day per week will be dedicated specifically to building interpersonal skills to help kids become more aware of their physical, mental and emotional bodies through yoga and mindfulness. Classes will be playful, engaging and community based! Kids will learn poses to help with life's common struggles and ailments, as well as breathing & meditation techniques to take into the home.The second day per week will be focused on learning skills in leadership and fostering a deeper connection with nature to enhance the health and well-being of each participant. Leadership is not currently a benchmark or standard in Wisconsin, and thus isn't a focus in the schools. With our current technology-driven society, there is a huge need for kids to be learning skills in leadership and character education.
A highlight of the experience is going to be the overnight leadership retreat at Devil's Lake State Park and rock climbing with certified professionals from Devil's Lake Climbing Guides. Parents are welcome to attend any of the after school care sessions and the retreat so the whole family benefits!

Hi, Moira here. When I'm not playing with my dogs, listening to music, enjoying nature or being with my friends/family, I'm probably writing. Read these blogs for wellness opportunities we offer at Hike & Heal, ones I know that are awesome or just some tidbits about living a healthier life.
