Try Yoga

We are loving your posts on Twitter and Instagram! This week your challenge is to try a yoga class. We invite you to check out the Student Health Center's free mindful yoga at the Contemplative Practice Center (Lower Level of Newman), try a TigerX class at MizzouRec or find a yoga class on YouTube. Yoga is a great way to get active while also reducing your stress and connecting mind and body.

A few tips before you start:

  • If you have health issues (illness, injury, or medical condition), notify your instructor before class. Not every pose is appropriate for everyone.
  • Be kind and loving to yourself by accepting where you are. It is ok to come out of a pose before the teacher says to. The body will respond beautifully when you show it kindness, acceptance and love. Rest sometimes. Do what you can, with what you have, with where you are.
  • No prior experience or flexibility is required. Yoga is for everyone.
  • If you need to leave early, tell the instructor beforehand and exit before final relaxation.
