MILLTOWN, NJ - The practice of yoga began more than 5,000 years ago and with it the health benefits. Regular yoga practice is beneficial in improving several aspects of health including:

  • Stress management
  • Weight loss
  • Depression
  • Brain function
  • Muscle tone
  • Coordination
  • Increased energy
  • Improved sleep

While adults can certainly benefit from yoga, so can children. Kids reap the rewards of yoga too. Yoga for children helps to enhance flexibility, muscle strength and coordination while improving focus and concentration. Just like in adults, yoga also promotes a feeling of calmness and relaxation in kids.

The Milltown Recreation Department is offering a springtime, Adult/Child Yoga Class from March 25 through May 20 for kids from four though eight years of age. The class will be offered on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m. at the Milltown Senior Center on Violet Terrace. Registration deadline is March 17 or until the class is filled. The class will be instructed by Michelle Scarduffa. The cost for the adult/child yoga class is $60.

Registration forms can be found online at the Milltown Boro website. Participants must fill out and return the form along with payment prior to the first class. Refunds for the eight-week session will not be given. Checks should be made payable to Milltown Recreation. Both the registration form and payment should be mailed to: Milltown Recreation Department, 39 Washington Avenue, Milltown, NJ, 08850.
