The Arroyo Grande Recreation Services Department is providing outdoor classes for community members to get out and enjoy the fresh air.

The programs can include the entire family and hope to help people's physical and mental well-being during the pandemic.

The recreation department has been providing these classes for a few years now, but they've had to pivot some of their classes due to state guidelines.

There are 15-20 classes a week. Classes can have up to 14 people depending on the age range.

KSBY caught up with the kid's yoga class, which helps encourage mindfulness and physical engagement.

"This is really great for this age group because these kids are stuck behind a computer screen all day, so to get them out in the park, get them engaged, and having fun is really just magical," said City of Arroyo Grande Recreational Services Director, Sheridan Bohlken.

The yoga class is available for any Central Coast student from ages 6-12.

"I love coming to yoga because I want to get out of the house more because we don't get out of the house very often now," said second-grader, Natalie.
