Yoga and Mindfulness for Girls: An Afternoon Retreat
In this afternoon retreat for female-identified children, we 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 children 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 children 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!

Instructor — Lara Christensen

Steeped in movement since age four, Lara equates yoga practice with inextricable movement towards healing. Through a lens focused on health, Lara encourages others to consider nurturing the self in their choices as well.

Her 200-hour teacher training course at Sellwood Yoga reminded Lara of the joy of connecting with others in a movement community, something she cultivates in each class.

Along with the sparks of healing and joy, in Lara’s classes you can expect to build your practice on a foundation of deep breaths and grounded release for your body, mind and spirit.
