Yoga Master Class -- DATE CHANGE
Wednesday, March 14, 2012
12:00-1:00 pm
Multi-use Room #2 - Freeman Athletic Center

Ashtanga Yoga is an ancient system of yoga as taught by K. Pattabhi Jois of India. It is based upon a dynamic linking of rhythmic breathing and flowing movement known as vinyasa. When practiced properly immense heat is created deep within our core that acts to purify the body. The focused breathing technique of "ujjayi" calms the mind and soothes the nervous system leaving one with a deep meditative calm. You will learn a complete introduction to the foundations of Ashtanga yoga followed by a full flowing first series session as well as a soothing deep relaxation.

If you have never tried Zumba this is an opportunity to give it a shot and donate to a good cause. If you are totally new to the leatest fitness craze called Zumba, think Latin music meets dance themes that create a dynamic and exciting yet easy to follow class.
