President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will be hosting a “Yoga Garden” this year for children and their parents who attend the traditional Easter Egg Roll festivities on Monday, April 21, 2014.
The yoga mecca is part of this year’s Easter theme, “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape,” which is part of the first lady’s “Let’s Move!” program and will feature professional instructors.
The event will also include a “Hop to it Stage” with a variety of dancing events, including “Baby Loves Disco, Hip Hop Public Health, KidTribe, and the Ohmies.”
Several athletes will be present for the “Eggtivity Zone.” Players from the Washington Redskins, the Washington Nationals, and other local teams are expected.
Other events include the “Eggsperiment Zone” featuring activities to “spark scientific curiosity” and a “Play with Your Food” workshop to “learn about healthy eating.”
According to the White House, more than 30,000 people from all 50 states and the District of Columbia have received tickets to the event.
