One of the newest programs we offer is Radiant Runners-Grace to the Finish.
This program is offered to Newtown/Sandy Hook girls in grades 3-6 and is available for spring and fall sessions. Radiant Runners combines the love of running with power of yoga and mindful thinking. The girls stretch, run, and are introduced to yoga inspired learning that adds elements of daily mindfulness, stress reduction and relaxation exercises, uplifting and grounding yoga poses as well as time for deep relaxation. This unique curriculum guides girls to build self-confidence, explore self-awareness, and opens their hearts to happiness that comes from within. A theme is incorporated into each session with corresponding running activities, expressive art projects, and a gratitude journal. The girls also complete a Circle of Care community project as well. The program culminates with the girls running as a team in a 5K race.
