Yoga Down on the Farm
Sunday, May 19th, 1-1:45pm, help support the Community Action Council of Howard County's Community Garden.
Join us at Sharp's at Waterford farm for an outdoor Sunday afternoon family yoga class. Adults and children ages 10 and older are welcome to participate in this basic yoga class led by Susan Kain. Bring your yoga mat or a towel and gather at the barn! We will have a separate area where younger siblings with a parent can watch and participate in their own way. Following yoga, feel free to stay and enjoy a picnic lunch by the pond, feed the farm animals, tour the greenhouses or venture out on a nature walk.
Registration - $8.00 for adults, 16 and older, $3.00 for children 10-15 years. All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Half the registration fee will be donated to the Community Action Council of Howard County's Community Garden for their work in feeding the hungry in our community. A basket for donated canned goods will also be available.
Register on or before May 17th. Call 410-489-2572 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

How freeing to have your arms and legs in the air like a polar bear!
I received a lovely holiday email from a parent in my Toddler yoga class today, complete with her little one in 'Downward Facing Dog' pose. I'm so thankful for the gift of seeing these precious ones weekly!
Thoughts on Yoga
I've been on this yoga journey for almost 20 years.
So what have I discovered? Yoga is so much more than physical poses. It's an opportunity to deepen our connection to ourselves, each other and our planet. It's a reminder to slow down, experience more and allow our practice to unfold, enjoying each precious moment.
Be a mountain, be a cat or just be you! Created by a yoga teacher, this book is full of child friendly poses all ages will enjoy. With engaging photos and illustrations, simple and repetitive wording, you and your child will want to read this book over and over again.
