YOGALATES

Pilates focuses on strengthening the abdomen, lower back, and hips-collectively referred to as “the core”, to maximize functional fitness and restore proper alignment. Yoga asana (pose) practice includes postures that improve balance and flexibility, facilitating a deeper body/mind connection. When the core strengthening aspect of Pilates is fused with the mindful movement of Yoga asana, Yogalates is born. This is a uniquely challenging workout that creatively leverages body weight as resistance, so no equipment is used other than a simple yoga mat. Techniques learned from this class can be practiced anywhere! Expect to break a sweat. Prior yoga or pilates experience is helpful but not required. 6 week session. MIDDLETOWN REC CENTER

THE POWER OF PLAY "Welcome to Docs in the Park, a partnership developed by doctors with Parks and Recreation programs that encourages outdoor play, time spent in nature and physical fitness. Doctors “prescribe” these activities because of the benefits provided, both physical and psychological. A recent report from the American Academy of Pediatrics continues to emphasize the importance of play for a child’s healthy development. Play can take on many forms from rough & tumble outdoor play to more structured indoor play. All are important in different ways and our role as pediatricians and parents is to make adult led organized play and self-led free play a core component of childhood. In this busy world of tight schedules, technology and pressure to achieve, playtime can be lost along the way. With this loss comes a sacrifice of an important rite of childhood as well as essential building blocks of healthy child development. Kids need the opportunity to explore, interact and work through challenges both physically and behaviorally at their level while

"In this busy world, playtime can be lost along the way."

allowing space for their own unique personalities and interests. Play, either physical or pretend, with or without friends, structured or not, inside or outside are all hugely important for child development. Docs in the Park and Frederick County Parks and Rec want to support you and your family to make the most of our parks and programming that emphasizes play!"
