Approximately 50 people attended Selkirk Elementary's first Family Yoga Night, including toddlers, students, parents, and staff.
Professional yoga instructor Miriam Tratt, of Return Yoga, led the group through yoga poses and techniques that were friendly for all ages and ability levels. The large group formed a fantastic and rejuvenating yoga circle as they were led though the poses. The exercises even brought out some storytelling and games, making the evening as fun as it was energizing.
Selkirk's Inner City Team members Vanessa Mani, Kim Whaley and Rose Hibbert, who also provided snacks at the end of the evening, organized the event.
"This was Selkirk's first yoga night, and what a success it was," said Doug Roch, Vice Principal at Selkirk. "It was an excellent opportunity for parents and staff to connect with one another, while simultaneously engaging in an activity that promotes physical literacy as well as community".
