2018 Born Yoga Spring & Summer Camps for Kids

Aerial Yoga Camp

Aerial Yoga Camp will introduce your child to the basics of Aerial Yoga, starting with proper hammock folding techniques and an understanding of how to safely pose in the hammock. They will learn multiple poses as well as simple flows in the hammock. Sessions will also include music, aerial yoga games, group & team building activities, arts & crafts, and healthy snacks. We will also spend time doing yoga outside.

Your child must be in at least 1st grade to enroll.

The total cost of this 1-week session is $195. This deposit of $100 ensures your child’s spot. The remaining balance will be due by June 12th. Please call us at 248-480-0452 to complete your payment over the phone or stop by the studio! You may also mail a check to Born Yoga, 2121 Cole Street, Birmingham MI 48009.

WHAT TO BRING:

  • We will be providing a healthy NUT-FREE snack (e.g. fruit or veggie, nut-free cracker, cheese sticks) for our Snack Break around 11:00. This is just a snack, not a meal. If you feel that your child has specific likes or is used to having more of a meal/lunch at this time, please feel free to pack a NUT-FREE lunch or additional snacks for them.
  • Please send your child with a WATER BOTTLE every day or leave it in their cubby. It is important for them to stay hydrated throughout the morning.
  • Your child is welcome to bring their own yoga mat or use one of ours.

WHAT TO WEAR:

-PLEASE, NO JEWELRY! Stud earrings are okay. Please remove all jewelry prior to practicing yoga as it can snag or rip our fabric hammocks.

-Come dressed in comfortable clothing free of snaps, zips or exposed buckles that could snag the hammock fabric. We will practice yoga barefoot so all shoes will be dropped at the door!

-WEAR LEGGINGS OR PANTS!!!!! It is highly recommended that kids wear leggings or pants to protect their skin as they move in the yoga fabric. When they do poses in the fabric with short shorts or leotards, it can feel very uncomfortable and limit participation. Loose and comfortable cotton pants, yoga pants or regular old leggings are perfect!

-Boys and girls with hair below the shoulders need to pull hair back for practice!
