Yoga/Nutrition

Yoga is about the union of each students’ own mind, body, and spirit. As a physical education class, our sessions will help make the body strong and flexible while improving the function of the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, and hormonal systems. On the physical level, students will practice yoga postures (asanas) that are designed to tone, strengthen, and align the body. On the mental level, students will use breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation (dyana) to quiet, clarify, and discipline their minds. Thus, in addition to physical and mental benefits we will involve nutrition education to enhance health and prevent disease.
