Gymnastics, Yoga & Art Camps
Gymnastics, Yoga & Art Camps prioritize awareness and creativity. We create a space of imagination, love and play where kids can learn and build friendships and new skills. These are really special camps–combining yoga, gymnastics, different forms of art and dance, relaxation and meditation. They are dedicated to the amazingness of human ability and fun! With multiple days of practice, students really get a chance to see their progress and be comfortable. Each camp has a different theme where we dive into a world of learning together. Also, since our camps run through the City of Los Angeles, these beautiful camps come at a more affordable price.
Camps are held at Westwood Recreation Center 1350 S Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025
Our camps run at school breaks throughout the year and are for ages 4.5 - 12. There is also a Leader in Training Program for ages 13 - 15, by permission only. Kids are divided into groups based on age and skill level. Most of the day, kids will be in small groups, but also will have time where we come together as a whole camp. Each day, students will practice yoga, gymnastics, movement and art. There will also be free play time and special activities. Magical things happen at these camps. Kids build confidence, connections, and healing happens as they step into their presence, strength, and ability to learn. Please bring a daily snack, lunch, and water. Come dressed for movement and leave technology at home. Please be sure to enroll early to ensure your spot and inform Laura of any special needs.
