Water aerobics, kids’ yoga classes planned

New Hillsboro recreation classes in water aerobics and yoga for kids will begin in June.

Holly Nickel, a certified group instructor, will teach the one-hour water aerobics class at 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting June 6, at Hillsboro Family Aquatic Center.

Each low-impact class will cost $5 and will focus on improving muscle strength, posture, balance, and mobility and flexibility of the joints.

The other class, from 10 to 10:30 a.m. each Monday from June 12 through July 31, will feature Lesli Beery teaching kids ages 3 and older to “play” yoga and experience how their breath and body move together.

Each session will cost $2. Group discounts are available for day care centers. Children 5 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. Caregivers may participate for free. Participants are being urged to bring their own mats. A limited number of mats will be available for rent at $1 per session.

Additional information about both classes is available from rec director Doug Sisk at (620) 947-3490 or
