St. Joseph's Elementary School, Newfoundland- Harbour Breton

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting St. Joseph’s Elementary School’s Green & Fit Program.

St. Joseph’s Elementary School is a K – 6 school located in the rural town of Harbour Breton NL.  Located on the south coast, this area has some of the highest rates of diabetes in Canada.  St. Joseph’s is working to change this statistic through their Green & Fit Program.  This program is designed to educate students on what it is to live a healthy life- one that includes daily physical activity. The program will look to enhance other programs already in place for students including physical education classes, Quality Daily Physical Activity, Participation Nation and family fitness nights with the purchase of new equipment.

This grant was made possible by the fundraising efforts of St. John’s Atlantic Place 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
