Family Yoga - Healthy From the Start | Member Benefit

Twice weekly, join us for playspace yoga —Mondays 11-1130 and Thursdays at 430pm— a wonderful, playful activity filled with both creative partner and individual poses.  Inspiration comes from animals to create an interactive introduction to yoga for your 1 to 4 year olds and their loving parents/family members. This time of being present without expectations is a sweet gift and a huge bonding opportunity for families.    

A child's job in this song-and play-filled activity is to explore and learn through observation, modeling and repetition. Grown-ups are there to connect, model mindfulness and have fun.  

While not nearly as serene as your typical yoga class, parent and child yoga at Recess introduces the same mental and physical benefits as other yoga activities: peace of mind, relaxation, and increased bodily strength and flexibility.

Like all of our playspace activities, Family yoga is a great way to break away from feeling over-scheduled, stressed-out, and just plain busy.

Ahhh...

Free for Members!  

Nonmembers may join by booking a playspace pass.

Member Benefit: Monthly Dance Party

Do you like to Jam?  Are you ready to party?  

Join award-winning family musician Charity Kahn for a highly interactive, joyful, playful and unique music class that will inspire your children (and you!) to sing, dance, stretch, breathe and imagine.  The JAMboodas Family Dance Party takes place one each month and is appropriate for all ages.    

Singer/songwriter Charity Kahn and her jammin’ band create soul and rock ‘n roll vibes authentic enough for any adult fan, but not at the expense of the young target audience. Catchy melodies and wonderfully imaginative, meant-to-be-heard lyrics aim straight for a child’s spirit, eager mind and dancing feet. This is one memorable—-and happily repeatable—-album.
— Lynn Heffley, Parents' Choice Foundation, May 2006

These dance parties provide a fun and social way to check out the JAMboodas vibe. We are incredibly lucky to get to share Charity's music with the Recess Community each month.  Charity has written all of the songs she performs and has an incredible library of music to share with families. Her tunes range from upbeat, rocking out, dancing, singing at the top of your lungs songs to winding down, chilling out, tucking in, singing in sweet harmonies.  For reviews and more info and to listen, go here
 

Whatever you do, come enjoy a morning of song, dance and mindfulness with your wee one, gramma and grampa, friends and neighbors...anyone you love!

Free for Recess members, Non Members can reserve a spot $28

Support for Families Affected By the Shutdown

Recess Collective was designed to harness the power of community in the effort to support families with young children. This is crucial for survival of a typical day as a parent, but also when crisis hits.

As the partial government shutdown continues, we are called to extend additional support to our friends and members who are federal employees.

Making ends meet without a paycheck is extremely stressful; we want to help alleviate some of this stress for our community. So we invite all parents of young children affected by the shutdown to come in for free access to support and play in a safe & healthy space at Recess.

Until the shutdown ends, we are offering federal employees with a valid government ID waived membership dues. This service is offered to current members as well as individuals and families who join Recess in January, 2019. Additionally, we welcome all non-member employees to come as our guest to reboot with a free cup of coffee, and space to let your little one play.

Our fundamental goal is to build connection through this place we’ve created for families. Recess invites government employees to lean in to this support while they’re experiencing unplanned challenges. To use this program, please send us an email at hello@recesscollective.org

The Sunset is the Place To Play in 2019!

As we move into 2019, we look forward to our first year of play in the Sunset. We have lots in store for the months to come including intergenerational activities with local seniors, Monday playgroups for new parents, monthly live music, & weekly (stress free) drop in activities included in membership such as storytime, music time and sensory lab!
