YMCA kids yoga addresses childhood obesity

in Health by

As the number of obese and overweight children across the country rises, the YMCA wants to help kids stay active with a brand new class: Kids yoga.
The 30-minute class is every Tuesday at 4 p.m. and facilitated by long-time yoga instructor Sally Moona. “Getting children involved in fitness at a young age is a great way to encourage a healthy lifestyle that they can continue throughout life,” says Sally.
During the class, children experience an uplifting, noncompetitive, mind expanding and fun way to build strength, spirit and self-esteem. They learn new stretches, breathing techniques and poses.
The kids yoga class is for children ages 3 through 15 and is available to YMCA members; however, first time Y guests are welcome to print out a free day pass on our website at www.ymcabeaufortcounty.com. For more information, call 843-522-9622.
