The Science of Movement

At Cypress Elementary School we believe it is important to educate the whole child. Developing healthy habits and positive attutudes in relation to exercise improves the overall life and learing environment of the student. Throughout the school year we will host The Science of Movement, a thirty minute workshop that is a synergy of Pilates and Yoga in partnership with Holy Cross Hospital. The program will provide students with a positive, non-competivite movement experience, focusing on improving strenght, balance and flexibility. Pilates and Yoga exercises improve stability, coordination and posture as well as joint health and breathing capacity. Cathy Whitt, a certified Pilates and Yoga instructor from Holy Cross Hospital Community Outreach will work closely with your child's teacher to create a posiftive movement experience. Cathy has over 30 years of experience in the fitness industry, has worked in healthcare for over 24 years and has an established relationship with the Broward County School System. For the last five years she has partnered with Broward Distance Learning and presented Pilates for Growing Healthy Kids on Pilates Day.
