Monday Yoga classes as 12:15 pm begin Jan. 23

Students are invited to join faculty and staff for a weekly yoga class taught by Jen Wyman of YogaFresh in Woodbury.  NOTE:  We must have at least 8 people for each class for Jen to commit to traveling to campus, and we need to know numbers if possible by no later than Jan. 16, so please respond right away if you are interested.

 What:                   A 50-minute yoga class, suitable for all levels.  Here’s a description from the instructor, Jen Wyman:

This balanced vinyasa practice will allow you to move at your own pace to explore breath linked with movement, to give you a break and refresh your body and mind. We will focus on basic to intermediate postures with options to flow through postures mindfully as we learn proper alignment, build strength and create flexibility, while meeting each participant at their own level of practice. This class is suitable for ALL LEVELS of participants from beginners to more advanced yogis.  All you need to bring is a yoga mat and an open mind!

When:                  Mondays (12:15-1:05 p.m.) beginning Jan. 23 (end date not determined)

Where:                WMCL Auditorium (mostly, a few classes will be held in the Kelley Boardroom)

Who:                     Jen Wyman, the instructor, is the owner of YogaFresh in Woodbury, MN.  For more info. on the instructor, see her bio on www.yoga-fresh.com.

How much:         Either $8 or $10/class:  If you would like to register for a month’s worth of classes in advance, the cost is $8 per class, paid on the first day of class.  Payment by check is preferred.  Checks can be made payable to Jen Wyman. Because there are only 2 classes in Jan. those wishing to take advantage of this pricing would pay through Feb. – or $48.
If you cannot commit to attending class on a weekly basis for at least 4 weeks in a row, that’s okay.  You may “drop in” to a class, but the price per class is $10.

Why:                     It’s good for you.  And you’ll feel great if you get away from your work space and stretch and breathe for about an hour.  Experts agree that the potential health benefits of yoga are numerous and include:  stress reduction; increased fitness (improved balance, strength, flexibility, and range of motion); management of chronic health conditions; and, potentially, weight loss.  So give it a try.  It’s only 50 minutes.  You just might like it.

Please send a reply to alison.morris@wmitchell.edu if you would like to register for the class.  Advance registration is required, in order to give the instructor some idea of how many students to expect, and to make room reservations and coordinate other logistics.   Also, participants will be asked to sign a waiver/release prior to their first class.  Please contact me if you have comments or questions.  Additional information will follow to interested parties.

We hope to see you on Mondays.
