From the bottom of our down dogs
to the top of our mountain poses,
YoKid wants to send our most stretched out thanks to all who helped to make our
YoKid Challenge last Sunday a success!

Over 120 kids and parents took on the challenge of 108 Sun Salutations with YoKid, Whole Foods Market, and the Childhood Obesity Action Network in support of kids’ health initiatives. Not only did participants get fit with yoga, but also learned how to set goals and eat healthy! We finished the day with lots of yummy snacks provided by friends of Whole Foods Market and art for a cause with My Social Canvas.

The picture above is a group of 9 elementary school children, led by one chaperone who made it to their school (on a Sunday!) by boarding a bus that picked them up in Southeast DC to come get fit with YoKid and Whole Foods Market. This is just one of me many wonderful moments captured on Sunday…more pictures will be coming soon on the YoKid Facebook page:
Keep Up With Us on Facebook!

A special thanks to Whole Foods Market
for making this event amazing in so many ways! Not only did their support provide free yoga mats, tee shirts,healthy snacks at the Challenge, and so much more…but their dedication to health education continues to uplift the community every day.

Another big thanks to all of our tireless volunteers!
Whether you donated your time at the event, items for the kids, or just simply helped to spread the wordwe wouldn’t have been able to put on this fun-filled day to promote healthy minds & bodies without your generous support. THANK-YOU!
