Yoga in Miller Park

The Read to Lead Academy is now taking students to Yoga in Miller Park once a month thanks to the planning, recruitment of sponsors, and implementation of Haley Doss of River City Company! This new initiative was designed for students to get out of their comfort zones by participating in fun excursions throughout the school year and not just during the summer. These monthly trips also include the aquarium, zoo, and the Discovery Museum.

Showing up for yoga on a rainy Saturday, the children didn’t know what to expect. Some unimpressed, others curious, they all walked slowly towards the yoga circle set up by Johnny and Tammy from Young Yogalettes. After being told to take off their shoes, they sat impatiently on their mats, awaiting more instructions. What started as breathing exercises soon became extensive stretches, forward and backward lunges, and wobbling every which way. As children often do, they quickly became comfortable with the stretching and attempted each unfamiliar move with enthusiasm and vigor.

As the yoga session came to an end, the children laid on their backs and listened to a story about the time Harry Houdini had been challenged to break out of a prison cell. He attempted to break out with a hidden piece of steel, but cheating was not enough to accomplish his goal of escaping. After hours of mental and physical exhaustion, he pushed on the cell door...and it crept slowly open.  As it turned out, the cheating had been unnecessary in the first place.

The story was a perfect conclusion to our time, ending with the children eagerly raising their hands and discussing why cheating is bad. Overall, the excursion was a success, and the Read to Lead  Academy cannot wait to take more students to the next Yoga in Miller Park!
