5/10-5/23/15: Flip Turns, Toprope & Inversions
Kids will show off their circus skills upside down and all around! We're headed to the big top to practice somersaults in the pool, headstands on the mat, and toprope on the wall.
Swimmers will be diving through rings of fire and focusing on flip turns while earning carnival games. Classes will look very different for a 2 yr old and an 8 yr old, but everyone will learn age/level appropriate skills.
Yogis will flip upside down to find a fresh perspective :). We will begin Thich Nhat Hanh's Pebble Meditation and kids will bring home their own bag of pebbles for home practice at the end of the series.
6/28-7/18/15: Pull, Crux, & Free Space
We'll run into aliens and climb through moon craters on our space adventure. We'll use our arms in the pool, our critical thinking on the wall, and let go on the mat.
Swimmers will be focusing on their arms.
There will be NO lessons 7/8-15!
Astronauts will practice critical thinking to rocket through the crux (most difficult part of a climb).
We'll blast off for some interstellar relaxation & fun alien movement. Students will go home with their completed pebble project to practice meditation at home.
Kids will perform skills to earn coins and "shop" for fun games. We will keep the atmosphere light as we practice more difficult safety skills.
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.
We are continuing Thich Nhat Hanh's Pebble Meditation and kids will bring home their own bag of pebbles for home practice at the end of the series.
5/24-6/13/15: Breath Control, Resting & Breath Awareness
There will be no lessons 6/2-6/8!
Take a break and take a breath! Our athletes are slowing down this week to focus on the breath. We'll practice bubbles and side breathing in the pool, resting and stemming on the wall, and focusing on our breath on the mat.
Swimmers are learning all about breath control. From keeping that nasty water out of your nose to perfecting freestyle breathing techniques.
Climbers will be focusing on resting and stemming. Everyone will learn age/level appropriate skills. The class will be split 50/50 between bouldering and toproping.
Yogis will practice focusing on the breath. Kids will decide what kind of breathwork suits their mood, and what poses will make them feel good. We are continuing Thich Nhat Hanh's Pebble Meditation and kids will bring home their own bag of pebbles for home practice at the end of the series.
Find out what our students are learning today.
