Yoga helps kids

A Walnut Grove fitness facility is hosting a new yoga fundraiser to benefit kids.

Yoga in the Park is a chance to do the popular stretching exercise while at the same time helping children at a new community fundraiser.

Oxygen Yoga and Fitness Langley invites everyone to Yoga in the Park from 2 to 5 p.m. on June 26 at Willoughby Park (beside the Langley Events Centre).

“This event is free to anyone to attend, children and adults alike,” said Lori Collins, owner of the Oxygen facilities in Langley and Fraser Heights. “We will also be collecting donations that will go towards Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley. We have chosen this charity as we believe that building relationships is essential to community success.”

During the three-hour window, Oxygen will be offering different types of classes. At 2:30 p.m., people can take in the Fast & Furious session while the Freedom Flow session is at 3:45 p.m. People can do as much or as little yoga as they choose. Some yoga mats are available but she recommends bringing one.

Participation is by donation and Collins hopes to make this an annual event. There’s also prizes and giveaways.
