Yogis of all ages showed up to Peace In A Pod Yoga Studio for a late morning stretch on Friday.

The family yoga class was held as part of Lakeview Parent Link Centre and the Eckville Recreation Board’s free Family Fitness Fun initiative.

The family yoga attendees practiced some deep breathing before stretching it out in some pose-based games. The class ended with a story read during a relaxing shervasana.

The free family fitness events began last month and will continue through to the end of March.

Remaining activities in February include sportball at the Eckville Community Centre on Feb. 13 from 10-11:30 a.m., a Family Day free skate at the arena and family wrestling from 2-3:30 p.m. on Feb. 23 in the Eckville Elementary School gym.

There will be four free events held in March.

Dance play will be in the gym on March 6, sportball will be at the community centre on March 12, Crank Gym will host family wrestling on March 16 and family tumbling will be the final event on March 30.

More information and complete schedule can be found on the Eckville Recreation, Arts and Culture Facebook page.
