“Teach the children. We don’t matter so much, but the children do. Show them daisies and the pale hepatica.Teach them the taste of sassafras and wintergreen.The lives of the blue sailors, mallow, sunbursts, the moccasin flowers. And the frisky ones—inkberry, lamb’s quarters, blueberries. And the aromatic ones—rosemary, oregano. Give them peppermint to put in their pockets as they go to school. Give them the fields and the woods and the possibility of the world salvaged from the lords of profit. Stand them in stream, head them upstream, rejoice as they learn to love this green space they live in, its sticks and leaves and then the silent, beautiful blossoms.” —Mary Oliver
I will be teaching kids yoga (for older children) outdoors at the Isaac Walton League, 5625 Myers Lake Rd, on Thursdays 12:45 - 1:30pm beginning April 28. (6 weeks/$48) This is open to homeschooled students. Learning Yoga āsana helps us understand the nature of our embodiment. Contact Jennifer@iycgr.com if your child is interested in participating in the kids yoga classes.
