The College of Veterinary Medicine Wellness and Health Organization (WHO) and Pendergrass Library are excited to announce a series of yoga classes available to UTIA students, faculty, and staff every week this spring semester.
Starts January 19 – Ends May 3
Tuesdays 5:15-6:15 – Yang Yoga – A series of strength-building poses sequenced with beginners in mind. Modifications are given to accommodate all body types and levels of fitness. Breath and movement are linked to promote a sense of well-being.
Wednesdays 5:15-6:15 – Yin Yoga – A slow-paced class in which participants hold supported poses for up to 3 minutes. Props are used to keep participants comfortable in poses designed to stretch connective tissue. Extra attention is given to breath work for maximum relaxation.
Most classes will be held in the Veterinary Medical Center’s Sequoyah Room, 2nd floor.
Classes on the following Tuesdays will be held in Pendergrass Library’s Alcove area: January 26, February 2, February 23, March 1, March 22, April 5, April 19, April 26, and May 3.
