St. Francis Xavier University - Nova Soctia, Antigonish

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Motor Activities with X (MAX) at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, NS. MAX supports children ages 4-18 with various forms of physical, emotional, intellectual and developmental disabilities as they participate in community-based physical activity programs. Based in the University’s Department of Human Kinetics, service-learning students provide participant-centered support to individuals. Supports may include design of tailored physical activity programs and/or the promotion of inclusive participation in pre-existing programs. MAX currently supports a sledge hockey program, a skating program, and an adapted aquatics program. Funding from GoodLife Kids Foundation will help to grow the programs, providing more children with the opportunity to experience inclusive physical activity. MAX support gives children with disabilities the best chance to succeed in physical activity environments.

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
