This two- hour course will provide a gentle introduction to yoga using standing and chair poses (no floor work). Please wear loose comfortable clothing that is easy to move in. A yoga mat is preferred for the standing poses (or if you have no mat, you may wear secure closed-toe shoes with good grip). This course is great for those who want to work on balance, flexibility, mobility, and relaxation. As long as you can stand up and sit in a chair, this class is for you! No prior yoga experience is necessary. Due to topic popularity, participants may take only one yoga course per term at initial registration.
