One program in Harrison County has been helping kids focus and find positive energy.
The Harrison County Family Resource Network started an initiative to train community members how to teach yoga to children. Kidding Around Yoga has started popping up at locations like the Meadowbrook Mall and the Clarksburg Harrison Public Library just this week.
Instructors said yoga can be a really powerful tool in helping kids find clarity.
“We teach them how to calm themselves down. ‘Peace begins with me’ is a big phrase that we use and they say it to themselves, and it really works. It really works,” said Debbie Johnson, yoga instructor.
The Clarksburg Harrison Public Library will be offering yoga for kids every Wednesday at 10 a.m.
