Moo, Baa, Oink, Woof, Meow! Get your body moving, your creativity flowing, and the giggles going at this fun family workshop run by Kaija Marshall. We'll practice animal-themed yoga poses and play games that get your heart rate going - a perfect blend of reality and pretend! Participants will take home a little animal-themed memento of our time together. Please bring yoga mats, towels, or blankets for you and your little ones to play on.
Kaija is a yoga instructor, birth & postpartum doula, and holistic workshop facilitator. She earned her Master's degree in Social Work from San Diego State University in 2015, her 200 RYS Yoga Instructor certificate in 2016, and her Birth Doula & Postpartum Doula training in 2019. She currently serves growing families as a doula all over Bend. Before moving into the perinatal sphere, she worked at Girl Scouts San Diego as an Evaluation Specialist, Camp Counselor, and Outreach Program Leader, all while moonlighting as a nanny for families in San Diego county. She firmly believes in the purpose of play, and seeks to encourage mind, body and soul connections through movement, productive dialogue, and authentic connection. She believes that data synthesis and gut feelings both have a place in decision making-- this is also reflected in her background: a unique mix of higher education and holistic training-- and this foundation allows her to help folks bridge the gap between institutional and instinctual knowledge to a place of understanding.
