Youthful Yoga Summer Camp
A 5-day camp for tweens & early teens in rural Hillsborough, NJ where you (or your tween, depending on who you are) will learn how to keep calm and carry on within all kinds of challenging exercises and postures to build a balanced, flexible and strong connection with the body that'll keep it healthy for long into the future.
a five day, all day summer camp for young adults
to learn how to look at life with peaceful ease through Ayurvedic yoga
Hosted in a private yoga studio in Hillsborough, NJ on almost three acres of natural land on a flowing creek, young adults learn about natural health within nature. Weather-dependent, the camp's mixed between in-studio time with all kinds of fun props (think yoga barre, inversion support and aerial silks) as well as outside in the sunshine for any activities, practices and entertainment that are supported by the weather. To keep the experience supportive & safe for all youth, it will be limited to 7-participants.
day one is ether
ether's there but you can't see it
Ether is the first element of creation - empty space that we liken to a blank canvas on day one. Whenever we embark on something "new," we get to create our own experience with it based on how we choose to approach it. This is the lesson of day one as we start our week together!
day two is air
air's invisible but it still moves
On day two, we focus on what we want out of this week and the changes we need to make to get it! Both on the mat and in our group project. Since air is what moves through space, we also learn how this all applies to nature - inside & outside of us!
day three is fire
fire transforms anything it touches
Just like paint transforms a blank canvas, fire alters everything it touches. Day three is all about discipline and using our inner fires to alter any actions or behaviors in the way of our goals. As conscious creators, we learn how fire is necessary to create beauty within the world around us!
day four is water
water holds everything together
Bodies of water create space for life, keeping everything nourished and together. This day's where everything we have done comes together! The first three days of effort paved the way and on day four we act like water and nourish everything we did together into a brand new creation of life.
day five is earth
earth provides us our structure
On our last day of camp we explore the world around us and practice gratitude for the structures in our lives that make space for all of our uniqueness. A day to appreciate the human experience and the physical world around us!

ensuring your youth's safety
Parents have been asking about the policies that will be in place to keep your kids safe, and I want you to know that is at the forefront of my concern as well! Both studios are cleaned daily and all cleaners have a base of 70% isopropyl alcohol to keep the space bacteria-free, mats will be socially-distanced for practice with stickers marketing the spot on the floors of both studio spaces, props will be distributed clean at the start of the day and each youth will have their own for the day, the aerial silk will be sprayed in-between uses, and there's a camera in both studio spaces so even if your youth travels, I have visual of them on my phone and on Alexa to ensure standards. Masks will be required upon entry unless a parent sends me a copy of their child's vaccination card in advance and will be taken off once settled on our mats and put back on when we are integrating with one another. Temperature will be checked everyday and the weekend before camp starts everyone will receive a COVID-19 questionnaire.
