Yoga sessions to be part of Easter celebrations in White House

Professional yoga instructors will have sessions with thousands of Americans who are expected to throng the sprawling White House lawns in Washington on Monday for Easter Egg celebrations, the final Easter for Obama administration.

A “Yoga Garden” is one of the 10 different zones that has been created for the event for which some 35,000 tickets have been issued for the people to come and enjoy the festivities.

On Friday, the White House announced the full programme, activities, and talent line-up for the 2016 White House Easter Egg Roll, a tradition in its 138th year and the largest annual public event at the White House.

In honour of the final Easter Egg Roll of the Obama administration, this year’s theme is “Let’s Celebrate.”

The event will feature live music, sports courts, cooking stations, storytelling and, of course, Easter egg rolling.

In support of Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” initiative, this year’s event will also include the first-ever White House fun run, where the US first lady will join 250 children on a short run to promote active and healthy lifestyles for kids.

This year’s special guest is Tony Award winner and multi-platinum recording artist, Idina Menzel.

Menzel will sing the American national anthem as well as perform on the Rock ‘n’ Egg Roll Stage.

In the Eggtivity Zone, the President’s council on fitness sports & nutrition as well as players and coaches from professional sports teams will teach kids how to play sports.
