During our summer camp, we are preparing a number of activities both to support critical fund-raising for the development of the school and to continue to foster our community. Some are purely for grown-ups, some can be enjoyed by all the family.
The following activities are space limited, so please pre-register using the forms below to reserve your place.

Drop your kids and come and do yoga and meditation with our community’s own yoga teacher. Maria is trained in hatha/vinyasa and kundalini. She teaches a non-dogmatic, body and soul freeing style. She loves the physical part, we usually don’t move enough, do we? But the movement and the breath ultimately lead to a space of freedom and letting go. Truly all levels welcome.
