Yoga & Mindfulness at the Somers Library!

Recently, the Somers Library offered a Yoga & Mindfulness program geared to teens / tweens in 4th grade and up. This program was presented by Denise Nobile, an ELA teacher at the Somers Middle School.  Ms. Nobile has been trained in the Little Flower Yoga Program, which is a comprehensive certification in yoga and mindfulness practices for children and youth ages 3 to 18. The Little Flower Yoga training, certified by the Yoga Alliance, focuses on the complete physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing of students.
This class taught participants to slow down and increase their awareness both externally and internally, to use their breath to find their calm during times of challenge, to feel energetic and balanced through grounding, strengthening and balancing yoga poses, to have better awareness of their focus and to relax and restore both their body and mind.

The participants had a great time and the library will be offering more classes soon.  The Somers Library is proud to offer a class such as this to our teen patrons!
