Each Rainbow Yoga gathering incorporates play into our time together. Adults, just like children, need time to play! Sharing laughter and having fun fosters empathy, compassion, trust, and deeper intimacy with others. Rainbow Yoga offers the opportunity to unite through yogic games and movement with music in a fun filled space. All children must be accompanied by a caregiver (16+).

All equipment and bait is included, just bring a lawn chair. Minimum age is 8yo, and a guardian must be present. We will meet at the picnic tables by the boat launch.
