Kids Yoga & Zumba® Coming Soon!
We all know how beneficial yoga and dance can be for adults, but what about the benefits for kids? The child obesity epidemic in this country is higher than ever. Due to TV, video games and computers, kids have become more sedentary. A great way to get kids off the couch and back into fitness is to provide exercise that is both fun and beneficial that meets their fitness level and interest.
Zumba® dance has exploded in the last few years and can be found at almost every fitness center. Zumba® also offers a program designed especially for kids so that they can enjoy this fun, motivating class. Zumbatomic® is exclusively for kids ages 4 through 12. These classes are rockin', high-energy, fitness parties packed with specially choreographed, kid-friendly routines and all the music kids love, like hip-hop, reggaeton, cumbia and more. Zumbatomic® will increase their focus and self-confidence, boosting metabolism and enhancing coordination. They will be having too much fun to even notice that they are exercising.
Another great way for kids to learn how their body moves, plus gain strength and flexibility is yoga. Kids Yoga is a fun and playful class where children will participate in specific games and activities that will teach them how to move energy through their body while calming their mind. They will also learn breathing techniques and ways to enhance their balance and flexibility. This class allows children to participate at their own level in a non-competitive environment. Kids, just like adults, can always benefit from a little calm in their lives, especially after a hectic day.
Both Zumbatomic® and Kids Yoga will be offered this fall. Look for Zumbatomic® at Princess Anne on Thursdays, beginning September 29 from 5:30 to 6:30 pm for 8 to 10 year olds and from 6:45 to 7:45 pm for 11 to 12 year olds. It will also be offered at Bayside on Mondays, beginning October 17 from 5:30 to 6:30 pm for 8 to 10 year olds and from 6:45 to 7:45 pm for 11 to 12 year olds.
