A Spring Family Day in Newlands Forest was thoroughly enjoyed by Colt children and parents on Friday. We found a beautiful spot under a canopy of trees with large rocks close by for the children to play on. Being surrounded by nature like this has a nurturing effect on both adults and children.
We formed a large circle for Yoga exercises and after some stretching and breathing we lay on our backs to look up at the canopy of trees, watching how the wind played with the branches and leaves. Everyone joined the forest walk alongside the river, and then we created mandalas. After our lunch and beverages we slowly walked back to the school bus for the trip home.
