Led by Joshua MacAran, GAMES DAY will return on February 27th and continue on Monday afternoons through April 3rd.
A Brattleboro, Vermont native, Joshua now resides in Camptonville with his young daughter and wife Michelle, who teaches Family Yoga at our weekly Playgroup. Actively playing board games since he was ten, Joshua describes how a fun pastime has evolved into a career.
by Joshua MacAran, Educator
I'm an avid gamer ever since I can remember. I played a lot of video games back in the day, but since I met my wife and had a child I've moved away from putting my energies into screen time and move more toward games with physical components and physical opponents. In my work with Epic Revolution I use circle games, sports, board games, card games, and occasionally video games to promote learning in a fun and relaxed environment.
I've also come to recognize the important connection between mind and body. I'm a trained yoga teacher and one of my missions in my work is to convince all those geeky gamer types that they'll enjoy their games (and everything else!) more and feel better if they get off the couch and run around a bit each day. I'm also passionate about helping driven overachievers relax and learn to enjoy life more. I guess you could say I'm an advocate of the middle path.
Although FREE, all GAMES DAY participants must be pre-registered with a permission slip and emergency medical form on file. We hope that you will be able to take advantage of this special opportunity. Participation is limited so be sure to sign up soon, as enrollment is on a first-come-first-served basis. Fun is guaranteed!
