Yoga Comes to Steil Club!

August 26th, 2012

This summer our Steil Club took part in a nine week yoga program that taught 12 young female Club members how to not only stretch their bodies, but their minds as well. It was a part of the summer Hascall Kit Kids program that is running for its second summer. Hascall Fit Kids is a program dedicated to teaching girls about self-esteem and empowerment in a positive way versus the “mean girl” phenomenon.
 
Before each class, Instructor Tamara Reaume would ask the ladies in her class to say their names, favorite yoga pose and how they feel when they do yoga. It was a unanimous that “up dog” and “Child’s pose” ranked the top two among the Club members in the class. During each class the instructor encouraged each Club member to lead the group in a Sun Salutation.

"I thought we had fun, found some body awareness and learned that we are have different strengths, likes, dislikes, and abilities, but also that yoga is an individual, daily pursuit," said Tamara.
