Ashley Hall Virtual Family Events

Intermediate Program and Upper School students and all Ashley Hall parents
Beginner level class
Ashley Hall is thrilled to partner with alumna Heather Pennington Downs ’79, owner of Down Dogs Power Yoga, for a mat-based class. Class will include gentle flow, linking breath to movement, and end with a meditation. Two instructors will lead the class, one serving as a visual reference and the other providing verbal cues and suggestions for modifications. Now has never been a better time to try yoga. Thank you Heather and Down Dogs Power Yoga! Please visit the Distance Learning Resource Board for access information.

At the end of a long week sitting in front of the computer, our bodies need some movement, our brains need to relax, and families need to have FUN together. What better way than throwing a family dance party? End your week by joining EEC division assistant and professional dancer Alex Kosarko to sway your way into the weekend. Parents and siblings are welcome. Dance experience is not necessary, and we promise it will be easy to follow along! Please visit the Distance Learning Resource Board for access information.

Mindfulness has been proven by science and experience to have positive benefits for our health and relationships. It is a simple practice that does not require props or prior knowledge, and it can bring awareness and caring into everything we do. Join Lower School faculty member Susannah Elliott in exploring a mindfulness practice as a tool for reducing stress and anxiety during this time of uncertainty. All ages are welcome!
