Kid's Yoga

kids-yoga

 

Join us for an introduction to yoga session with our very own certified Yogafit instructor, Darlena Daniels! Yoga is great for kids because it’s a great way to relax, also gives them an opportunity to look within, and it creates a positive attitude towards physical activity. Games will be involved!

If interested, please call or visit the library and sign up. This will help us prepare better for the event! (518-638-8911)
