Restorative Yoga

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 are provided. Please come in comfortable clothing.

Please note that classes are on hold for Summer Break. Check back in late summer 2023 for updates on the Autumn Quarter schedule. 

For additional yoga offerings on campus, please check out classes in Ratner Athletic Center and those hosted by Spiritual Life in Bond and Rockefeller Chapels as well as on Zoom.
