Finding personal balance in a busy life is important for everyone. The practice of yoga can be a powerful tool every student can learn and practice as a lifelong skill that can help a person achieve this balance during the school day and beyond. The word yoga means “union” and refers to the integration of the whole person, physical and mental, with the goal of wellbeing. This course focuses on learning the asanas (physical practice) of Hatha Yoga as a means for students to develop a stronger, more flexible body while learning and practicing breathing and relaxation techniques designed to teach students to manage stress. An important aspect of the course is proper alignment, modified based on individual need.
