Think summer: West Seattle mom offering new camp YogaGirlz

Though three months remain in the school year, if you are looking for summer camp, it’s practically “the last minute.” One new option is offered in West Seattle this summer – a yoga summer camp for girls. YogaGirlz is the brainchild of Shana Hageman, who says, “As a longtime West Seattle resident, mother of two daughters, and a yoga instructor, I realized the community needed a program that provided a tool box for girls to navigate their world. I combined the benefits and elements of yoga with a framework to build self esteem and give them the opportunity to find their own voice. YogaGirlz strives to create a more authentic world, one girl at a time.”

In addition to her yoga work, Shana also spent eight years as a mental-health therapist specializing in working with girls 6-18. Along with yoga, she says her camps will include nature walks, collage, cooking, arts/crafts, and more. She is planning four weeklong day-camp sessions, one per age group (12-15 the oldest; 3-5 the youngest) between July 18 and August 12 at Kenyon Hall; you can check on registration availability at or 206-715-3213.

    the URL in the link in the third sentence is wrong; should be .com rather than .org
