Trick or Treat?

Halloween Yoga!

Trick or Treat?

PLAY, CONNECT, AND GROW!

Trick or treat?

The power goes out when you have a full workday planned or your car gets a flat while rushing to a meeting? These can seem like life is playing tricks on us, but are they disguised treats instead?

Yes, couldn’t it all be a treat, if we shift the way we look at things? The power going out forcing us into an opportunity to play outside or do yoga with your kids or the flat tire ends up introducing us to a new friend:) I want to be that little Halloween spirit in your ear saying, ” It’s not a trick, it’ a treat!”

I invite you for the month of October, to partake in this mantra. “It’s a treat!”

We at Wee Yogis have prepared lots of TREATS for you this October!!!
First off, I am ecstatic to bring the Wee Yogis Teacher Training, which is certified by the Yoga Alliance back to YogaWorks Main Street this weekend. Yes, THIS WEEKEND! This is a two day training open to anyone that wants to share their love of yoga for children where we will cover all the in’s and out’s of working with kids aged 2-12. We’ll teach Yoga poses, Yoga Breathing exercises, Yoga games, Yoga Stories, Yoga Music, and more. Yoga! Yoga! Yoga! We have a couple of spots left and you can register here: WEE YOGIS TRAINING
