The program was timed to coincide with the beginning of sports season for children and teenagers, whose schools and athletic program require that they pass a physical examination before participating.

According to the announcement, the $39 special is available seven days a week from March 1 through May 31. Certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants who specialize in family health care will conduct the exams and fill out any necessary team forms. No appointment is required.

In addition to the individual deal, a $5 discount is available for coaches, team leaders and athletic directors.

I am a freelance writer and part-time yoga instructor in Las Vegas. I started my yoga practice in 2000, at City Yoga Los Angeles. In early 2004, I moved to Las Vegas and began practicing at Sherry Goldstein's Yoga Sanctuary. In 2006, following some big changes in my life, I went through a teacher training and started teaching at Yoga Sanctuary. I knew after my first class that I wanted to keep teaching yoga for as long as I could. In 2007, I completed a 200-hour Anusara teacher training with Noah Mazé and City Yoga founder Anthony Benenati. As part of that training, I received Yoga Alliance RYT 200 certification. From 2008 to 2011, I also was an Anusara Inspired™ instructor. While continuing my career in journalism, I've simultaneously nurtured my skills as a yoga instructor, in order to better communicate with and help my students. The trainings and workshops I've taken have focused increasingly on the therapeutic benefits of the practice. Thanks for visiting. If you like my posts, please subscribe and comment.
