June 2017: Quiet Arms, Quiet Feet, Practicing Silence
PBJ kids are practicing silence. Sounds scary doesn't it? We'll spend the first week of June talking about stillness and quiet before taking the plunge. One full week of silent(ish) swim, climb, and yoga classes. What do you think we'll learn when we try to take the focus off of our spoken words?
Yogis and yoginis will take a mini silent retreat. We've been practicing our routine so that we don't need words to know what's coming next. This is a BIG challenge!
We will learn to use the strongest part of our foot and make a plan to use the available footholds.
Swimmers will be focusing on sneaky and intentional alternating arms. In backstroke we'll slice the water with our pinky. In freestyle, we'll enter the water quietly to sneak up on our friends. All students will work on age/level appropriate skills.
Come join our high flying crew! May classes are all about safety.
Swimmers will be focusing on safety techniques in a controlled environment. This will look different for each level, but every student will do at least one swim without goggles. Since some of these skills are scary or difficult, we will include extra time for fun games.
Some of the skills we will learn in order of difficulty are:
Climbers will be practicing safety skills. Everyone will learn age/level appropriate skills. The majority of each class will be spent bouldering.
Some of the skills we will work on are:
