(Evansville, IN) – St. Mary’s Wellness Center will soon offer a NEW yoga class designed for parents and their children to enjoy together. “Mom or Dad & ME Yoga” is a three week class for children ages 4-10 years old and their mom, dad, or other adult. Both parent and child will learn poses that involve stretching and strengthening, and that can be practiced in the future at home. There will also be Beanie Babies, yoga kid cards, and games.
Recent studies have shown that yoga can help children concentrate in school, improve strength and coordination, and manage stress and other emotions. Participants may choose from two class options:
Wednesdays, April 30th – May 14th from 4:00 – 4:45 p.m.
Thursdays, May 1st – 15th from 5:30 – 6:15 p.m.
The classes will be led by Wellness Coordinator Helen Emge Shymanski, a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, certified health coach, and certified yoga instructor with 13 years of experience.
The cost is $45 for each adult-child pair. Please call 812-485-5725 to register by April 28th. For more information, including a link to a short video about yoga for kids, please visit http://www.stmarys.org/wellnessclasses.
