Healthy Living Course for Parents and Adventures for Children

Healthy Living Course for Parents and Adventures for Children From 5 - 12 in France. All of us are very busy. As much as you can you do take care of the health of your children, but often neglect yourselves. For this reason, the parent and child course is organized. Through Ayurveda, you learn the base of healthy eating and cooking for yourself and your child. The children do not only have fun but learn a lot from being outside in a group dynamic. Every theme week has a few life values at its core, which are tools for the children to handle life. The children's program is given in Dutch, but the attendants do speak English.
