Special Olympics Canada

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Special Olympics Canada’s Active Start & FUNdamentals Leadership Training program.

Special Olympics’ purpose is to improve the lives of Canadians with intellectual disabilities. Active Start & FUNdamentals are community programs that focus on fun, structured play and the development of fundamental movement skills for children ages 2 - 12. These programs rely on trained volunteers to run the programs and working with special needs individuals requires specific training. Special Olympics Canada provides the necessary leadership skills through their 12 week Youth Leadership Training program, offered at no cost to participants. It is anticipated that 250 youth will be trained and this will directly impact approximately 700 children who will participate in the Active Start and FUNdamentals programs right across Canada.

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
