POP Yoga presented by Pediatric Dentistry of Shreveport Bossier allows children to be active alongside their parents. The free program is offered every Monday at 9 a.m. in Power of Play (POP) Children’s Museum and is exclusively available for Sci-Port members.

"We want to provide an opportunity for children to connect with themselves and learn how to stay healthy through yoga. The benefits of this class are numerous in that it helps children learn to focus, manage stress and build inner strength, all through a variety of fun excercise games,” said POP Manager Chante Hood.

Stefanie Petet of Little You Yoga leads the 45 minute morning workouts, which are designed for families, especially those with children ages 5 and under. Each class is personalized and coincides with the POP learning theme for the month. Fresh smoothies and yogurt parfaits are available for purchase in the Galaxy Café for those attending POP Yoga. 

According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, only one in three children are physically active every day, and 28 percent of all Americans are physically inactive.

“By providing not only a family bonding experience, but also a way to encourage a healthy lifestyle at an early age, this program can have lasting benefits for our community’s children,” said Sci-Port President/CEO Ann Fumarolo.
