March is Kingston Gets Active Month! A calendar of activities for all ages is bound to increase your activity levels. With regular engagement (i.e. everyday!) you may experience increased energy levels, improved quality of sleep, lower stress and FUN! All the activities can be done at home, outdoors, virtually or in person.
Kingston Gets active is partnering with St Lawrence College Therapeutic Recreation students, who will be providing live virtual classes for all ages—from “Going for the Gold” for families, to “Stretch and Energize” and “Chair Yoga” for older adults, and more. Other virtual classes from local providers include Basics of Cycle Commuting, Pilates, and play break ideas for toddlers. In-person programming includes: Intro to Snowshoeing, outdoor Story Walk for toddlers, On-Ice Try-It Ringette and child and youth sport sessions.
All the details are in the Kingston Gets Active Calendar, which can be found on the Kingston Gets Active website.
