Fiber Arts with Danielle Miller
Join our very own lovely Blue Rock music teacher, Danielle for some wooly, yarny fun on Wednesday afternoons. Students can learn a new craft (knitting or crocheting), receive help with an existing project they would like to finish, or get advice and ideas to start a new one. We will even learn to make our own yarn from wool using a drop spindle. We will choose a few group projects based on the interests of the participants and it will be a lovely time together.
Yoga with Angeline Montoya
Angeline teaches a fun, nature inspired, and heart-centered kids yoga class with room for exploration and curiosity. She encourages each child to engage and explore through breath work, yoga sequences, and tools to practice mindfulness. As a mom of 2 young boys, she loved how they embraced her yoga practices when she taught them. She hopes to pass on the gift of yoga to our younger generations.
A local mom and herbalist (and current Blue Rock parent!), Angeline has practiced yoga since 1999. She received her 200-hour teacher training through Betsy Kase at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale and Level 1 and 2 Yoga and Mindfulness for Children with Mayuri Gonzalez at Little Flower Yoga in Croton.
