May 2016 Event: Wellness Seminar & Yoga Class

Our second May event at the Harlem PAL Center was hosted by Debbie Williams, a certified Health Coach, RN and a Farm and Kitchen Board member. Topics discussed included 'The danger of added sugar', 'The importance of reading food labels', 'Portion control', and 'Fast Food: making healthier choices'.

The discussion was lively and everyone enjoyed healthy snacks while participating.  This was followed by a yoga session led by local yoga instructor, Alida Collins. She focused on helping the kids understand how to be more mindful in the moment, showing them relaxation/breathing  techniques and giving them some simple stretches that could be used anywhere to alleviate tension.
