Today was all about downward facing dogs and warrior poses. The Wilmington YMCA is taking part in America on the move week. Today members had the opportunity to bring a friend to any yoga class for free. The nation wide event is an effort help people lose weight. The Wilmington YMCA has membership discounts this week because they believe it is easier to get active with a friend. “You have a lot of Y's getting involved in it because you have a lot of people that need to lose weight. And they don't want to do it by themselves so they get their family and friends.” said Charles Bealon, a YMCA manager. Bealon said working out with your family helps because they serve as a support system and can impact the meals you eat at home. The Wilmington YMCA will have events going on throughout the week to celebrate America on the move.
