The White House's annual Easter Egg Roll continued its tradition of offering yoga this year.

As well as the traditional egg roll across the lawn, guests could participate in a variety of physical activities with professional athletes, including yoga in the "Yoga Garden." Participants could also dance and play tennis and basketball. 

The Easter celebration is a White House tradition that dates back to 1878. On Easter Monday, the grounds of the White House are transformed. The highlight of the event is the egg roll, brightly colored hard-boiled eggs are pushed across the lawn with a spoon. The fastest egg roller is the winner.

This year the event drew 30,000 people and was based on the theme "Get Up And Go" in support of Mrs.Obama's nationwide campaign against obesity.

Mrs. Obama said,“I'm a big proponent of getting up and going, making sure we're moving and eating healthy, and this Easter Egg Roll reflects all of that."
