Yoga for Relaxation: A gentle to moderately paced class, suited for all levels of fitness. We will be focusing on breathing exercises and stress release techniques, as we thoroughly stretch the muscles to reduce physical pain and deeply relax the mind and body.

Power Yoga: This class offers a dynamically paced practice for students who want to explore increased intensity levels. Options will be given for more intermediate and advanced postures, such as; arm balances, handstands, and back-bends. Suited for those with some Yoga experience and free of serious injuries.

Vinyasa (Flow) Yoga: Vinyasa means, "breath-synchronized movement." This class involves moving and breathing through a series of postures, increasing awareness and union between the mind, body and breath.


A punch card system will be used; all students, faculty/staff, spouses/dependents and community members may purchase one or more of the 20 or 30 class punch cards and attend any of the sixty weekly classes offered throughout the fall semester. To ensure the best and most positive experience, it is advisable that students who are brand new to Yoga take several Yoga for Relaxation classes first, to learn and refine basic skills before moving into Power Yoga classes. Conversely, "more experienced" students may discover personal benefits from taking Yoga for Relaxation.
