Shaping Minds and Bodies

To foster the comprehensive physical education program offered at James H. Boyd Intermediate School in the Elwood Union Free School District, students participated in a week of yoga led by trained yoga instructors.

Sponsored by the PTA arts-in-education committee, students enjoyed a visit from Prana Yoga and Wellness of Northport instructors Kathleen Brady and Cathy Donnelly during their physical education classes.

As an introduction to the art of yoga, students learned basic stretches and poses to practice balance, flexibility and strength. Additionally, students were educated on the names of each stretch and completed routines featuring various yoga poses.
