Aqua Yoga incorporates the gentle low-impact Yoga poses along with the resistance and help of the water to develop strength, static balance, increases range of motion, along with an inner sense of relaxation from the use of rhythmic breathing.

We are $23,000 away from our Annual Campaign goal at Tacoma Center YMCA and University Y Student Center of $345,000. Help us make a difference in our community by checking out our Silent Auction items, made available by some incredibly generous donors. This year, we have everything from a Pool Party Rental to a Youth Sports Basket, an Elliptical machine, or even a football signed by Atlanta Falcons NFL player, Desmond Trufant that you can bid on. All proceeds benefit the Annual Campaign.

Silent Auction takes place April 3-10. For more information, visit our website or please contact Tina Werner at 253-534-4727 or twerner@ymcapkc.org.
