The focus of this course is on nonjudgmental awareness of body and mind, as well as breathing, alignment, flexibility, strength, and balance. Simple but not necessarily easy practices will be taught. Most students will have had some experience taking yoga, but some will be new to it. All should bring as many yoga props as they can, including a yoga mat, one to three yoga blankets (bath towels are OK), one eight-foot yoga strap (or a similar non-stretch fabric strap, such as a bathrobe or raincoat belt, or a couple of old neckties), and two thick yoga blocks. Materials cost: $40, depending on what needs to be purchased. Due to topic popularity, participants may take only one yoga course per term at initial registration.
