Studies show that direct exposure to nature has a positive effect on a child’s physical and emotional development. These green-time sessions will give children the opportunity to unplug and balance out their weekly screen-time exposure with mindfulness, sensory awareness and curiosity.
This class is recommended for children ages 7 to 11 years. Space is limited and registration is required.

Each green-time session begins in the McCalla Picnic area with a series of breathing exercises designed to calm and center the body and mind. Participants then have the opportunity to customize their session by selecting an intention from a green-time-inspired menu. A short sequence of guided breathing exercises invites participants to rejoin the group and close out their session.
