Hygge Time

Hygge (pronounced hue-guh not hoo-gah) is a Danish word used when acknowledging “a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cozy, charming or special.” Spend this hour learning how to be mindful, practicing meditation and learning some yoga.  Learn how to make your own space relaxing and calming using materials already in your home.  Teaching children that they are in control of their space and energy can help at a multitude of ages. Invite a friend and let’s get hygge together!

Contact us for information for the next session! Coming soon.

Cost for this group for each participant is $150
