RE­LAY GAMES: Stay­ing ac­tive is great for over­all health and was some­thing that was pro­moted at this year’s Roma Re­lay for Life.

If they weren’t do­ing laps of the oval, re­lay­ers were hav­ing fun at the beach vol­ley­ball nets or par­tic­i­pat­ing in chair yoga.

Lo­cal busi­nesses do­nated sand and ev­ery­thing needed to help set up a beach vol­ley­ball court at Cities oval, where the event was held.

Play­ers had fun spik­ing the ball and vy­ing for the win­ning spot.

Re­lay­ers also had the chance to un­wind with some chair yoga.

Yoga has been shown to im­prove over­all health, pre­vent and dis­ease when prac­ticed reg­u­larly as a life­style.

The usual moves as­so­ci­ated with yoga have been mod­i­fied to do from a seated po­si­tion.
