A Yoga Experience At West Acres

We had a great time helping people of all ages take a break from shopping and get a little bonus cardio in during last weekend’s Yoga Experience @West Acres event at West Acres mall in Fargo.

Here’s a short video of kids jumping around to the Recess Rocks! theme song for our Recess YES! initiative.

It was nice to get out and encourage fitness in the mall and show some alternative ways for North Dakotans to get moving inside during the long winter. BCBSND also sponsors the renovated Recess West play area at West Acres that opened in 2013.

Some of our employees provided wellness resources during the yoga event at West Acres.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by, took part in the family yoga class and the adult yoga demonstration. We’d also like to thank Mojo Fit Studios and West Acres for partnering with us on the event.

What are your favorite activities to help your kids get active inside during the winter or extreme weather?
