As Mineral County School’s open this week, Kathy Trujillo, Kids Yoga instructor, issued a reminder about the weekly classes that have been held for free for youth of the community. The yoga classes begin at 5:15 p.m. at the LDS Recreation Hall located at the very top of A Street every Wednesday.
The LDS facility became the home for yoga after the class lost its studio at the Cultural Arts Center. “The space is absolutely perfect for the kids. Lots of room to run and stretch, and then ab-solute peace and quiet when needed,” stated Trujillo. She also pointed out that Kids Yoga helps build strength, focus and community, but is not religiously based.
This will be the fourth year that yoga is offered to the youth in the community and a strong core group of volunteers and regular students has been built. Fawn Cunha and Ruby Ives have co-instructed the class and provide supervision and guidance. Thankie Nunnally is the “keeper of the key” and makes sure everything is good with the facility and Trujillo added, “Ms. Nunnally has got-ten into the habit of baking for the children. We are so spoiled.”
The practice of yoga is known to help students develop inner strength and discipline. Concepts of community and kindness are also incorporated into the practice. All ages are welcome and because of the generosity of the LDS Church the classes continue to be offered at no charge. Contact Kathy Trujillo at 316-0388 if you have any questions.
