The Margaret McCoy Community Garden in Clarksburg now offering weekly ‘Kidding Around Yoga’

Harrison

There are many different types of yoga but not all yoga classes are specific to children.

The Margaret McCoy Community Garden is hosting a six week ‘Kidding Around Yoga’ course in Clarksburg off Monticello Avenue.  

This is a 45-minute yoga class every Saturday morning starting at 10 a.m. for all children ages 4-10.

Substance abuse prevention specialist, JoAnne McNemar, said this yoga class is all about teaching children and their parents how to de-stress and live a positive drug-free life.  

“Our overall goal is to teach young children how to breathe correctly, which will help them think more properly and clearly, how to stay calm, and when they do come up to adversity how to know within themselves how to center and find healthy solutions,” said McNemar.

There are five more Saturday yoga sessions that will be held at the garden, which are free to all children and families.

The only thing to bring is a yoga mat.
