A Groovy Retreat
Friday, July 24, 2009
Fairfield's Beth Furman will be offering her Yoga Groove workshop for kids and preteens ages 5-14 at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in the Berkshires. Beth has studied yoga, dance, and many other forms of movement for more than 30 years, including hip hop and African dance. She has an amazing way of building self esteem and confidence in young girls.
They'll explore hip hop, break dance, vinyasa flow, creative movement, and yogic dance. Each day will begin with a warm up of yoga, breathing, and asana-inspired movement. Then they'll kick it up a notch as hip hop and world music provide the backbeat for group and individual dance, self-expression, and creative movement. The retreat runs August 16 - 21st.
During this workshop the kids will
-Unleash their creativity in a safe, nurturing, nonjudgmental environment
-Experience a variety of dance forms, from hip hop and break dance to free-flowing expressive movement
-Create and structure original dances through "choreography-play"
-Increase kinesthetic awareness
-Hone listening skills through exposure to an eclectic mix of music.
The program includes time for parents to share, and celebrates everybody's "flava"—all skill levels, all ages!
While the kids are channeling their inner groove, spend some you time in one of the following sessions also taking place at Kripalu.
