Lotus Girls is a joyful and adventurous workshop for 6-10-year-olds, exploring the relationship between body and imagination. Incorporating yoga-based movement, dramatic play, sensory exercises, storytelling, journaling, art projects, and more, the course is designed to help young girls tap into their innate creativity. Applicable to all the arts and beyond, the work is focused on building physical fitness and body confidence, nurturing social-emotional skills, and sparking the imagination. We celebrate inquiry, improvisation, individuality, diversity, collaboration, involved listening, physical freedom, uninhibited participation, and a spirit of playfulness.
beanstalk classes are a warm and playful mash-up of yoga-based movement, mindfulness exercises, imagination games, sensory exploration, storytelling, dramatic play, and hands-on art projects, structured around both traditional and inventive themes. Geared toward early childhood and the elementary years, class activities nurture key areas of child development, including gross and fine motor skills, language, and social-emotional growth; recent research supports yoga's positive effect on cognitive development and executive function.* beanstalk programs stretch and strengthen both body and imagination, encouraging young children to express themselves physically, vocally, and creatively.
