St. John Vianney Catholic School, Ontario- Rexdale

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting St. John Vianney Catholic School’s Gymtastics Program.

Students at St. John Vianney, in Rexdale ON, like many other places in Canada suffer from lack of activity as well as from obesity. This Gymtastics program will allow students access to gymnastics/climbing equipment that they otherwise would not have access to. Many students are unable to afford or find this type of programming in the area.

Gymtastics will provide students with an age appropriate circuit training program based on gymnastics. Stations will include a climbing wall, tumbling mats, balance beams among other things. This unique program will provide an under serviced community the opportunity to experience gymnastics and stability training first hand. It’s no secret that if someone likes doing something they will continue to do it. Through an enjoyable program as this, students will hopefully gain a lifelong love and respect for physical activity.

This grant was made possible by the fundraising efforts of Etobicoke King’s Mill GoodLife Fitness associates and members during the 2013 fundraising campaign.

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
