Yoga for Kids — Every Saturday, 10:15-11 a.m.


It’s just like yoga for adults, but sillier. Yoga is a great way to increase fitness, decrease stress, and improve mental focus in a non-competitive manner. We invite kids age 7 and older to join us every Saturday morning, 10:15-11 a.m. and start your weekend out right.


ASC yoga classes use Yoga for Kids, a 4-H Healthy Living Program developed by University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service.
