When we teach children how great the world really is, we remind ourselves of the potential of life.

The afternoon will be full of lessons such as: asking for help, kindness, and gratitude taught through high-flying acro yoga. All in attendance will hear lessons on overcoming fear, dealing with adversity, and how to trust and help others.

Children are eternal optimists. Our intention is to fuel that. Within themselves, but also in all of us.
