In November Springs School announced the start of yoga classes as part of Physical Education on its web site (springsschool.org) :
“The Springs School Physical Education program launched yoga classes this week for grades kindergarten, second, third, fourth, and sixth. The yoga program is funded by the Anna Lytton Foundation for Arts and Wellness. A certified yoga instructor, Linda Muse, will teach yoga to P.E. classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the next few weeks. “Students were engaged and had so much fun practicing different poses and learning about balance and relaxation,” said P.E. teacher John Foster.
Anna Lytton, a former Springs School student, was tragically killed two summers ago in a bicycling accident in East Hampton while riding to her summer job. To honor Anna’s passion for the arts, her family established the Anna M. Lytton Foundation for Arts and Wellness, to be dedicated to enriching arts and wellness for the young, including these classes at Springs School. Contributions may be addressed to the Anna M. Lytton Foundation, P.O. Box 625, Amagansett, NY 11930.”
