Family Night

This past Thursday, the Perry community gathered for our monthly Family Night. The main focus of the night was to teach families ways to keep their bodies and their minds healthy for the New Year. To show how families could stay healthy at home, everyone participated in a beginners yoga class to learn about ways to calm the mind and increase flexibility in a low impact way. As a community partner at Perry School, Little Friends For Peace is working at peace starting with oneself and yoga is the perfect outlet for this. It is important to have peace in yourself before you can share peace with others. After yoga, we joined together for a balanced meal of pasta, salad, fruit and vegetables. The night was a lot of fun, and families are now equipped with the tools to continue living a healthy and peaceful lifestyle.
