WELCOME TO RA MA MAMA
NEW AT CAMP GRACE…
Camp Grace is thrilled to announce a new program to support mothers in all of their glory: RA MA MAMA.
RA MA MAMA is a sanctuary space and support program designed to help mother’s maximize their time at Camp Grace.
Featuring a sacred space of toys and activities, the RA MA MAMA sanctuary is set aside from the main meditation hall and overseen by a select crew of mama helpers and professional childcare. Please see the profiles of our incredible RA MA MAMA leaders at the bottom of the page.
KIDS IN THE YOGA SPACE
Moms with children are asked to sit in the designated area in the Yoga Space. This facilitates easy access for you in out of the room and gives your little one a bit of space to spread out with their toys, games, books, etc…
While baby and child noises are fine during the more dynamic parts of Camp Grace (Yoga, Dharma Study, Group Activity, Q & A), we do ask that you step out to the RA MA MAMA Sanctuary with your little one if these noises continue into the more meditative parts of the sessions.
ABOUT THE SANCTUARY
The RA MA MAMA sanctuary provides an outlet for children to play while mothers are in session with Guru Jagat or for mothers and little ones to connect in a fun and safe environment.
The RA MA MAMA sanctuary will be open throughout the day, however the mama helpers and parallel programming will be available only during the main sessions. Mothers are responsible for their little ones during mealtimes, before breakfast and after dinner.*Children under the age of 5 must be attended by a parent of primary caregiver.
If your child is joining us in the Yoga Space, you are responsible for their close supervision. Please also keep your child within close physical proximity to you if they are joining you in the Yoga Space.
In the case that your child may like to join you in the Yoga Space, bring toys, coloring, snacks, entertainment devices, etc… to keep them happy. Likewise, children are welcome and encouraged to join for Sadhana–they can sleep! Bring blankets and cozies.
MEET THE RA MA MAMA LEADERS
Carla’s adventure with Kundalini Yoga + Meditation began in 2004 and in 2018 she founded The Moon Sanctuary, a magical home studio in Atwater Village offering programming for mothers and children. She brought her youngest daughter to Camp Grace when she was 4 months old and it was the most powerful step she took towards taking care of herself as a mother with two small children. It is from a deep place of deep gratitude that she is called to help make Camp Grace and these sacred teachings more accessible to mothers.

Consider teaming up with another mom + child for a Shared Gold Room for a more economical option. If you do not upgrade your accommodations, you will be paired with other mothers + children in Standard Accommodations.
- *If your child is male and over the age of 4* you are required to upgrade to a Gold Private Room or a Gold Shared Room with another mother with a male child.
