Hillery Woods Siatkowski

Hillery Woods Siatkowski

Girls aged 11 to 13 are invited to explore nutrition, yoga, positive body image and creativity during a weeklong teen yoga camp at Roots & Wings Facilitating Healing, conveniently located by the Quakertown high school. The camp runs from 1 to 4 p.m., July 9 through 13.

Led by Roots & Wings owner Hillery Woods Siatkowski, LMT, RYT-200, the girls will have a daily yoga practice exploring themes of art, ecology and wellness. Activities include wildcrafting herbs, meditative mandala making, self-care practices and building healthy relationships.

Woods Siatkowski is a licensed practitioner who values what she describes as the genius of youth. She says of this camp, “My experience facilitating youth-adult dialogues has shown me how wise our young people are, and how they deserve every opportunity to believe in themselves. The physical activity and mental practices of yoga are a great way to develop self-awareness and confidence. As an ayurveda yoga specialist, I will integrate self-care practices that girls can use as their bodies mature. Adding art, nutrition and nature will round out this memory-making experience.”

Cost: $250. Location: 127 S. 5th St., Ste. 150, Quakertown. Call 215-257-5025, email Info@HilleryWoodsWellness.com or visit HilleryWoodsWellness.com.
