Running into Sarah Disney, Pok-O-MacCready’s Camp Director on a snowy, winter day outside Lake Champlain Yoga & Wellness is all it took to get things moving for POKO campers to participate in summer yoga this past month.
“The camp is always looking for new and different programs for our campers and Yoga was a perfect fit for us,” Sarah said.
Teenagers need to breathe, stretch and relax just like everyone. So we scheduled three classes for the summer of 2014 all taking place at the Lake Champlain Yoga & Wellness studio in Essex. Boys and girls ranging in ages from 11-15 would take a break from camp, jump in a van and travel to Essex from Willsboro for an hour and fifteen minute Yoga class.
Sarah said, “We thought we would have a few campers interested, but by the end of the 3rd class we had over 50 campers who participated and LOVED it!”
