Beginning Yoga for a Happy Back

Open to Faculty, Staff, and Administration

Wednesdays 5:00pm – 6:15 pm; January 8 - March 11, 2020

Meets in Mirror Room at E. and L. Fitness Center

This beginning yoga practice is for those who would like to explore movement with an emphasis on maintaining range of motion in the spine, while supporting the back. The practice will include different breathing techniques, gentle warm ups, and therapeutic poses that may ease tension in the hips and the back. Standing and kneeling poses will be offered to encourage greater balance with a focus on developing core strength. We will end the session with a restorative pose that aids in reducing stress and inducing deeper states of relaxation.

Please bring a yoga mat, blocks, and a blanket if you have them.

$10 Drop in Fee or $90 for 10 week session. First time participants are welcome to attend a class for FREE!
