Welcome to Yoga
This yoga course is designed to increase both physical and mental fitness - allowing students to get more out of day-to-day life and cross-train skillfully for other sports or life stressors.
Through the practice of basic postures, breath techniques, mindful meditation, and guided relaxation students will build confidence, strength, awareness, and flexibility while having fun.
Natural effects of this regular class include: vibrant/tangible health, increased concentration, an ability to maintain positive focus in challenging situations, and increased presence and happiness.

It is likely we will continue to encounter uncertain times ... remember your healthy habits, practice yoga and/or simply take study breaks of stretching/breathing, meditate, remain engaged with your family and friends, take a walk, listen to music, schedule your work time, and enjoy your play time. Your patience and good attitude about accepting the uncertainty and trusting everyone is doing their best is appreciated. Be well.
