BENEFITING: Kids Work It Out
EVENT DATE: Oct 16, 2016
Work It Out provides a safe, healthy outlet for children in Detroit schools to learn about nutrition as well as mind and body wellness. After receiving rigorous training, certified yoga instructors spend 10 weeks working with children to teach yoga and breathing techniques, while also sharing important nutrition information. At the end of the session, each child goes away from our program with their own yoga mat, a colorful workbook and a sense of accomplishment when they receive their certificate of completion.
One student stated, "I like how everybody participated to help us. When I came from yoga I had a lot of energy in my mind –it helps me to think a lot. Every time we eat healthy food, we get stronger and stronger." -Andrew, 9 yrs.
