Sun and Moon Yoga Camp is now registering for its July 4-8 and July 11-15 sessions, which will be held at the First Baptist Church of White Plains. The camp, which runs from 9 a.m. to noon, engages children in a comprehensive yoga practice through which they will gain a deeper relationship to their breath, body and mind, says Cristina Ortiz, a teacher at Sun and Moon Yoga.

“Kids will learn about the musculoskeletal system, how to access new breathing patterns, and various meditation techniques, including art making, and will even learn to speak a little bit of Sanskrit,” she says. Daily activities include asana practice (postures), art, meditation,
anatomy and breath-awareness exercises.

The July 4-8 (Tuesday-Friday) session costs $144, and the July 11-15 (Monday-Friday) session costs $180. Limited scholarships are available.

First Baptist Church of White Plains is located at 456 North St. For more information, contact Sun and Moon Yoga White Plains at 914.217.9425, email Cristina Ortiz at [email protected] or visit
