The events range from Zumba to healthy eating, a wellness check, yoga, and line dancing. These events are a great way to destress from a long week of hard work. Reward yourself with a wellness check or yoga on Saturdays! Dobbins Community School is offering these free healthy activities to Philadelphia residents like you and me. The events are a fun way to get moving with your family or friends or just a way to reduce your stress.
