Big Brothers Big Sisters, Ontario- Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox, Addington

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox, Addington’s Go Girls! and Game On programs.

Go Girls! is designed to address the physical activity, balanced eating and positive self-image needs of girls ages 10-14 based in a group mentoring model. The main goal of Go Girls! is for girls to develop an appreciation of the benefits of an active, healthy lifestyle. The program is structured around four themes: physical activity, healthy eating, self-esteem, and communication skills.

Game On! uses a mentor approach to provide boys ages 10-14 with information and support to make informed choices about a range of healthy lifestyle practices. Through non-traditional physical activities, complemented with healthy eating support, participants will have the opportunity to become involved in lifestyle decision making and develop habits for regular physical activity.

Today we're celebrating the #SummerSolstice and #InternationalYogaDay Yoga is an awesome way to help kids develop important physical and mental skills - and it can be easily adapted for all ages and abilities! For younger children, keep practices short and use stories and familiar animals or objects as cues for them to mimic with their poses. For older kids, try building to some more challenging balancing poses or turn inwards to focus on the stress-relieving benefits of the practice. #activekids #yoga
