Workshops & Events
For all who are curious about what happens at a park playdate, here’s what we usually do:
— Warm-up that involves either a game of follow the leader across park equipment, or some ground movement stuff such as crawling variations and locomotor movements
— Stations: We’ll move our way across a park or facility, often starting at monkey bars and working on hanging, traversing, climbing, etc. (everyone does their own thing at their own pace); then finding areas of the park to practice natural movements such as balancing, jumping, etc. It’s all very chill and everyone sort of does what is comfortable and accessible to them– no pressure!
— Cooldown: Often we end with more crawling stuff and get silly with little ones if we have them.
Sound fun? I promise, it is! Hope to see you there!
