The Long Beach Rec Center is now offering Yoga for little ones! In these classes, children are introduced to yoga poses and breathing exercises that build body awareness, balance, strength, and confidence. To reach and engage the mind of a child in yoga practice, each week focuses on a different themed imaginary “adventure” to places such as the zoo, the arctic, a pet store- where we meet and act out related yoga poses for the various animals and things encountered. Yoga for our littlest yogis (strong walkers-age 3) is a parent-child style class held Wednesday mornings 9:30am-10:30am, and for those in school (approx. ages 4-6) there is a drop-off class Wednesday afternoons 4:00pm-4:45pm. Bring a yoga mat or towel and dress in clothes good for stretching. Come play yoga! Visit www.longbeachny.gov/rec for applications or more information.
