with Claire Wilde

at Align Fitness
$25 for the afternoon. Five student minimum required to run the course.
In this afternoon retreat, your daughters will explore yoga and mindfulness as tools for greater self-acceptance, mind-body connection, and interpersonal skills. Yoga poses, breathing exercises, visualizations, and relaxation techniques will be introduced and practiced as a way to support your daughters in developing more awareness of themselves and the world around them. They will experience the benefits of these practices in a welcoming and safe environment.
This fun and informative afternoon will help to relieve the stress and anxiety that is becoming more common with girls ages 10-14. The calming and self-soothing techniques that will be practiced will provide positive tools that can be applied at school, home and in a variety of social situations. Set your daughters up for success with positive tools they can use for the rest of their lives!
I wanted to let you know that [my daughter] LOVED the retreat she attended!! She has significant anxiety which sometimes causes her to take her frustrations out at home. After the retreat she was like a different girl for a good week or more. As an experienced yogi, I feel like she was grounded and that really made her more able to navigate her anxiety, and the affects were felt a lot around our house. I so appreciate what you’re doing!– Parent of a past participant
Instructor — Claire Wilde
Claire Wilde found yoga after a spinal fusion surgery at age 12 left her feeling hopelessly disconnected from her body. Linking breath with movement, exploring her body’s abilities, and getting comfortable with its limitations allowed her to come back home to herself. She delights in holding space for other people’s explorations of their own unique body-minds, and her classes are relaxing, meditative, and deeply nourishing. Claire completed her 200-hour Teacher Training in March 2016 at Sellwood Yoga, and she completed her Kids Yoga Teacher Training with Annie Kobliska-Becker and Rosey Wyland in 2013. She is also a labor doula, and especially enjoys working with children, families, and people in any stage of the childbearing year. You can learn more at www.everywheredoula.com.
