Young Yogis in the Park kicks off its summer program of free weekly yoga classes for kids Friday, June 6.

Kids ages 6-17 are welcome to the 45-minute classes in the park. Children ages 5 and younger are allowed with an accompanying caregiver. Participants do not need to have any yoga experience and should expect a class of play-based yoga with games, music, teamwork, laughter and kid-friendly poses.

"Getting kids familiarized with the fundamentals can prepare them to be open to the benefits of yoga as they grow," instructor Wendy Crichton said.

The summer program will meet from 9:00-9:45 a.m. on Fridays during June and July, with the exception of July 4. During June, classes will be at Northridge Park, which is at 8800 S. Broadway. During July, classes will be at Red-tail Park, which is at 2674 Pemberly Ave.

Participants are asked to bring a yoga mat or beach towel, sunscreen and a water bottle. The class is free but donations are accepted, with half of all money collected going to Relay For Life of Highlands Ranch.
