Modified Yoga for Kids - 290509

Yoga can be very beneficial for individuals with disabilities and for children with attention deficits and/or hyperactivity through both the physical postures and breath work. Each yoga pose can be modified or adapted to meet the needs of each participant, and may be performed with the instructor's active assistance as needed. Yoga postures, or asanas, can be performed on the floor or while seated in a chair or wheelchair, and help to improve body awareness, self-control, flexibility, strength, and coordination. Yoga helps to channel impulsiveness and excess energy in a calming and positive way while providing sensory and motor input, all in a supportive and accepting environment.

Community Service Club - 290909

Here is our chance to give back a little! Community Service Club is an opportunity for us to get together and lend a helping hand within our community. We will meet the first Thursday of every month to plan and organize ways in which we can help others. On occasion, we will come together on another day and time of the week to carry out our plans. Maybe it will be helping at a food pantry, bringing towels to an animal shelter, or handing out water at a road race fundraiser. The possibilities are endless, and up to you! So come join in to help give back, make some new friends, and have fun!

Therapeutic Horseback Riding - 293009

Location: Ironstone Farm: 450 Lowell Street, Andover, Mass

In partnership with Ironstone Farm, we are excited to once again offer this program for thirty minute PRIVATE sessions. There will be an initial evaluation required for all new riders. You will coordinate with the farm to find a time that is right for your own schedule! Challenge Unlimited at ironstone Farm is a therapeutic riding program whose focus is to help each individual achieve his/her fullest potential. The movement of the horse strengthens the development of fine and gross motor skill and provided sensory input. With this premise in mind, Challenge Unlimited staff develops exercises and activities to benefit each individual, addressing issues that are not easily addressed in a classroom setting. A separate information packet with the necessary forms will be available upon registration. Please contact the Recreation Department for details.
