Yoga For Kids In Miller Park Offered On Saturday

Thursday, September 12, 2019

Yoga for Kids launches this Saturday, Sept. 14, from 10–11 a.m. in Miller Park for a three-month series facilitated by Young Yogaletts. With two additional classes happening on Oct. 12 and Nov. 9 at the same time, families can gather together for a free, fun outdoor activity on select Saturday mornings thanks to sponsors First Tennessee Bank and Tralia Health.

Young Yogaletts is a program ran by Johnny Martin who leads child centered yoga classes throughout the Chattanooga area serving several Hamilton County Schools and athletic teams in the art of yoga.

“Our classes are designed to empower children to build self-confidence and develop an awareness for their own body and surroundings,” said Johnny Martin, founder and instructor at Young Yogaletts. “We cannot wait to lead Yoga for Kids in Miller Park and accomplish this goal with our local community.”

The class is typically designed for children ages 5-8, but all ages are welcome to join. All participants need to bring is a yoga mat or a towel.

“Miller Park is a great community space, and we’re excited to bring family friendly, active programs into the heart of our downtown and the Innovation District,” said Amy Donahue, director of marketing and communication at River City Company.

Yoga for Kids is possible through a community partnership of River City Company, Young Yogaletts, The Chattanooga Public Library and The Bethlehem Center.
