The physical practice of yoga provides us methods on how to breathe, stand, sit, and move for an optimal shift towards living in the present moment. Individuals expand awareness by exploring the body through intentional action as a way to calm the mind. Side effects include building physical and mental strength, endurance and discipline, increasing circulation, respiratory capacity, and stabilization, calming tension, easing pain and finding balance. Understanding of self, feelings of bliss, acceptance, and love may also occur. Yoga is not magic, it’s a practice, and you have to do the work. Our 5-Part Introduction to Yoga Series will prepare you to take classes on the UP yoga schedule with confidence. Each week will progress your understanding and build your bank of knowledge about the body, the breath, common yoga postures, and the language of yoga instruction.

Everyone has a personal challenge (or more than one) they face day-to-day. Whether it’s a physical limitation like mobility, injury, or flexibility; mental or emotional challenges like anxiety and depression; or something more deeply personal; we all struggle in one way or another.
This program is designed to help students find ways to identify, address, and, over time, surmount the challenges present in their daily lives. By implementing techniques like meditation, pranayama, and focused asana sequences, the program presents students with a healthy, holistic modality for managing these common stressors.
