Recess Rocks with Open Door @ Nelson Park

July 13, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Recess Rocks Ossining

The Recess Rocks® program, led by trained movement instructors from the Open Door, will lead elementary school-aged children (ages 3-11) in “a creative, dynamic movement session, that reverses childhood obesity and promotes life-enhancing habits.

Recess Rocks is a comprehensive movement program that helps reverse childhood obesity and enhance learning for elementary school children. Recess Rocks emphasizes children’s non-competitive enjoyment of using their bodies rather than mastery; they are encouraged to move in a way that’s comfortable for them but self-challenging as well. Its inclusive, positive philosophy and upbeat methodology engage and inspire children through:

  • Copy-me directions (“watch my feet,” “mirror me”)
  • Enthusiasm (“that’s awesome!”)
  • Guided behavior (“freeze” instead of “no”)
  • Imagery (“hot floor,” “swirl the clouds”)

Open Door is the region’s experts in all aspects of health, with a broad focus on building healthier communities. From prevention and wellness programs, to the treatment of diseases, Open Door sees their primary mission as keeping the people of Westchester and Putnam Counties healthy and strong, regardless of their ability to pay.
