rutherford yogaRutherford Elementary School students in grades K through 2 had the opportunity to participate in an after-school yoga program through EPIC (Every Person Influences Children) this past March.

Students learned poses, breathing and relaxation techniques, mindful meditations and chants to help them focus, create balance, understand their bodies and make healthy eating choices through The Children’s School of Yoga, a program that provides classes to thousands of children each week in 10 counties and three states.

A new session for Rutherford students in grades 3-5 began on March 30. The sessions will include yoga poses, breathing and relaxation techniques, yoga games, chanting, journaling and healthy food choices.
