For our Phamilies...

When it comes to our wellness practices; how often have we wished someone would have just told us about them sooner? Wouldn't it have been great to learn Yoga as a child, meditation for our big feelings in middle school, or how to listen in to the signals of our own bodies long before we were suffering from debilitating symptoms in adulthood? Here at The Pharm, we've always believed that wellness practices are meant for all ages. Children learn and grow in using them by watching their elders and community members engaged in these practices on a regular basis and by being welcomed into these spaces to explore their own practice. It was why (Pre-COVID) we always welcomed children in class; why we pushed to provide integrated childcare that allowed younger students to flow between play and practice; and why we offered classes like Children's Yoga, Teen Yoga, and Village Yoga. In out new pandemic landscape; finding the time, space, and resources for our family wellness practices has been (to say the very least) extremely challenging.
