Flexibility and Friendship Grow in Yoga Elective

November 11, 2022

Students in the Downtown Campus Yoga Elective have had fun this fall while stepping out of their comfort zones! 

Most of the class is new to yoga, and they’ve gradually built up a repertoire of yoga poses that they combine in new ways each class. Over the past months, students have found their balance in Tree Pose, developed strength in Warrior, and increased their flexibility in Cobra. They’ve explored the mental and spiritual sides of yoga, too, as they set intentions for their practice and tried out centering techniques like Ujjayi breathing and visualizations.

A student favorite has been partner poses, in which they pair up to achieve a single,  balanced pose. Students also added their own creative spin to traditional yoga as they played Night at the Museum (a freeze game) with yoga poses.

Great job, yogis!
