Toronto Council Fire Native Cultural Centre, Ontario- Toronto

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Toronto Council Fire Native Cultural Centre’s Little Embers Program.

Aboriginal communities have been struggling with numerous health and social problems ranging from rampant diabetes, hypertension and poor physical fitness to issues of homelessness and addictions.

The Little Embers Physical Recreation program provides essential access to recreational activities, social supports and academic assistance based on cultural values and traditions. The 7-15 year old Aboriginal youth in the program become equipped with a range of essential life-skills to promote healthier, more active day-to-day lives. GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting the physical activity portion of Little Embers Program.

The grant is made possible through the fundraising efforts of the Toronto Group Exercise Team and GoodLife Fitness members and associates during the 2012 Be A Kid’s Superhero 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
