Preschool Programs

Tofino Parks & Recreation, Fall 2007


This Fall program guide contains program and event information from September to early December, 2007. The following programs are for preschool age kids.

Yoga for Moms & Dads

Tofino Community Hall
Wednesdays • 9:30-10:30 am
Oct. 17th to Nov. 28th
$30 per adult

Yoga with my kids? This is how it works: Moms and Dads will be practicing sun salutations, standing poses, forward bends, backbends and maybe even inversions! Basic yoga knowledge will be helpful but is not necessary.

Your kid(s) will use you as a living jungle gym; be prepared to become a tugboat, a starfish, a horse. Your child will visit you on your mat or attempt their own practice next to you. This will be a fun and experimental class as your child helps deepen your poses and teaches you to laugh and let go.

Age: approx. 1-4yrs. (child must be walking) Call Instructor Sarah Platinius at 725-3667 if you want to participate but have questions about your needs. Pre-register at 725-3229.
