Are you feeling stressed out? Have you wanted to try Yoga but have been intimidated in the past? You are not alone!

Students today face ever-increasing levels of stress that are causing burnout, fatigue, anxiety, and other mental and physical imbalances that can get in the way of enjoying life. Many of us have heard that Yoga can help but are often hesitant to practice because we fear we are not flexible enough, athletic enough, or “Zen” enough.

This Restorative Yoga class may be just what your mind and body need! Join us for this accessible and approachable Restorative Yoga class that will help ease tension and melt your worries away. Using props like blocks, bolsters, and blankets, you will relax into several Restorative Yoga postures that are held for several minutes at a time. We use mindful breathing and meditation techniques that are sure to leave you calmer and more grounded than when you walked in the door.

If you’re looking for a workout or a good stretch, this is not that class. If you want to ease into relaxation quietly, you’ve found the right place!

All props and mats will be provided. Please come in comfortable clothing.

This Winter, classes will take place on Tuesdays starting January 10th from 4-5 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room of the Student Wellness Center.

Please note that yoga classes are now drop-in, first come, first served. A reservation is not required, but it is helpful to let us know you are coming and if you'd like to receive reminders. If you would like to register for a class, please do so here.
