Governor's Coalition for Youth with Disabilities (GCYD) Logo Contest for Students with Disabilities
GCYD is holding a logo contest and we would like HS students to submit their logos and artwork for consideration. Below are the rules for our GCYD logo contest. Please share with your schools and your consumers who are still in HS. Our goal is to find a new logo for the Governor's Coalition for Youth with Disabilities that we will use on our website, letterhead, etc., that has been created by a youth. To learn more about the GCYD go to: www.gcyd.org.
We have been running some very successful yoga classes and strengthening/coordination classes for kids with and without special needs that your group may be interested in. They are lively classes that the kids have a lot of fun in at a very reasonable cost. I am currently in the process of adding additional class times so anyone can visit our website at kidstherapy.biz for the info on any new classes. Thanks!

YOGA FOR KIDS
Yoga promotes strength, flexibility, balance and coordination as well as attention, relaxation, and body awareness. As children transition through postures and try new poses, they improve their concentration, self awareness, and self esteem.
Yoga groups are designed for kids with both typical and special needs. Classes are instructed by a licensed physical therapist with specialized training in yoga for children with special needs. Class size is limited to 6 participants, although parents are welcome to join in the experience with their child. Individual sessions are also available for infants and children.
Mondays: 9:45 a.m.
Tuesdays: 4:30 p.m.
Thursdays: 1:30 a.m.
All yoga and fitness classes are instructed by physical therapists specializing in kids.
