University of Calgary- Faculty of Kinesiology, Active Living- Alberta, Calgary

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting University of Calgary’s Adapted Physical Activity for Kids program. The program is for children with special needs ages 4-14 and it’s targeted to improve physical health. It also assists with improving behavior, independence, and overall well-being within the participants. The kids will take part in 90 minutes of activity per week. Some activities are exercise specific, like yoga, others are sport based and some focus on movement and coordination. The program offers the children a chance to learn a variety of activities and explore what they can do and open opportunity to finding new activities they may not have otherwise experienced.

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
