Transcript Keeping balanced Sophomore biology major Madeline Uy keeps herself balanced during! one of the class exercises. Students enjoyed the yoga, which gave them exercises that were often very different from the traditiona calisthenics offered by other groups Photo by Kena Alvarado BOUNCE & Cetera! groups sponsor A reflection of health Instructor Pam Rossman leads her class in yoga stretching activities. The different activities offered in yoga classes allowed students to focus their minds, relax, and get a low-impact workout all at once. Photo by Kena Alvarado 52/ Student Life When the stresses of tests, the fatigue of studying, and the boredom of life in general became too much, students just had to escape. To this end, the UH Women's Network, Instructional Fitness, and the Wellness Center teamed up to offer free yoga classes twice a week. These classes were offered at no charge in the Garrison Gym to UH faculty, students, and alumni. There was no registration required for the hour-long sessions, and people could come and go as they pleased throughout the year. Students came to these classes for various reasons. They offered an opportunity to escape the stresses of every day life, relax, and focus their energy on something fun. Since they were only an hour long, it was easy to drop in between classes on Tuesday or Friday, allowing the participants to rejuvenate mid-day. Some students wanted the chance to experience the yoga craze, but could not find the time or money to take such classes at their local gym. Since the classes were free, the students did not have to strain their finances, and because they were in the middle of the day for such a short time, it was easy to work the sessions into their busy schedules. Many students appreciated this opportunity to try a new activity without skipping a few meals (or classes) in order to make it work. The classes also offered a unique form of low-impact exercise, helping the students maintain strength and flexibility. This was a great option for the student who wished to get in shape, or maintain his or her figure, without rmmm getting hot and sweaty. Even students who claimed to hate exercise could have a good time in this class. As was the case with most extracurricular activities, the yoga sessions offered an added bonus of meeting new people. The relaxed atmosphere facilitated talking and hanging out, and since it was right around lunchtime, it was easy for students to go for a bite to eat before or after the classes. Story by Ashley Grubbs Reach for it! Students in the yoga class stretch before they begin the other activities. Even though the workout in yoga classes were different from others, they still required basic stretching at the beginning to avoid injury. Photo by Kena Alvarado toga
