Please join us as we kick off Fun Fitness Saturdays in R Park! These enjoyable and fitness-oriented events are planned for the last Saturday of each month from June through September, and are intended for all fitness levels and all ages, so bring your friends and family out to R Park! A $5 suggested donation will go towards R Park improvements. We are currently fundraising for a park shelter.This June we will feature yoga and a parallel kids’ yoga practice so the whole family can enjoy! Don’t worry if you haven’t done yoga before, it’s a great time to try it out with the community.
We’ll be led by Roeland Park resident and registered yoga teacher, Nicki Johnston! Nicki is an amazing and peaceful teacher who especially enjoys teaching those new to yoga. We will also have a parallel practice for kids age 5 and up led by Marilyn Pace, the owner and Director of Children’s Yoga Kansas City. So come on out, and bring a yoga mat (or just a towel or blanket), water, comfortable clothing, and if you can afford it, a $5 donation towards R Park improvements!
People of all ages and all fitness levels are welcome to join in these entertaining community wellness activities together in R Park, located at 5535 Juniper.
Activities scheduled for the LAST SATURDAY of the months are:
June – Yoga (Separate instructors and practices for children and adults)
July- “Soccer Croquet”
August – “Nerf Ball Diamond Challenge”
September – to be announced
“Fun Fitness Final Saturdays in R Park” is organized by Citizens Fundraising Initiative for R Park. The July and August activities will be co-led by “i9Sports of Johnson County.” A $5 donation is suggested which will go toward building a community picnic shelter in R Park. Shade is a critical need in R Park since 40 mature trees had to be removed due to Emerald Ash Borer disease.
