Introduction to Yoga
Grissom Library
Saturday, Sep. 2, 11 A.M. (saturdays, Sept. 2, 9, 16, & 23, 11 A.M.)
or call 757-369-3190.

Introduction to Yoga

Intructor Laura Deiulio will teach a 4 week course of beginning yoga at Grissom Library, Sept. 2, 9, 16, & 23, from 11 a.m. - 12 noon.
Please bring a mat and towel or strap to use during class.
Registration is limited to 15, and it is recommended to begin with week 1.

Yoga can

  • Lessen chronic pain
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Reduce insomnia
  • Increase flexibility
  • Increase muscle strength and tone
  • Improve respiration, energy and vitality
  • Maintain a balanced metabolism
  • Aid in weight reduction
  • Improve cardio and circulatory health
  • Improve athletic performance
  • Protect from injury
  • Help manage stress
  • Improve mental well-being

Because there are so many different kinds of yoga practices, it is possible for anyone to start. “Whether you’re a couch potato or a professional athlete, size and fitness levels do not matter because there are modifications for every yoga pose and beginner classes in every style,” says Dr. Nevins. “The idea is to explore your limits, not strive for some pretzel-like perfection. It is a great way to get in tune with your body and your inner self.”?
