Namaste! Time to get bendy and relieve stress. For Winter Term 2, the GSS Yoga Class is even better, with sessions offered in two styles — Yin and Flow.
Yin yoga comes from the Taoist tradition and focuses on passive, seated postures that target the connective tissues in the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Poses are held for anywhere between one and 10 minutes. The aim is to increase flexibility and encourage a feeling of release and letting go. It is a wonderful way to learn the basics of meditation and stilling the mind. As such, it is ideal for athletic types who need to release tension in overworked joints, and it is also good for those who need to relax.
Open to yogis of all levels! Whether you are just getting acquainted with downward dog or you have that toe stand nailed, everyone will be challenged at the appropriate level.
Current UBC graduate students get a 22% discount for less than $5 per session!
This class must have a minimum of 15 participants to run.
* Available starting on Jan. 2: To avoid EventBrite fees, in-person payment at the GSS Office is available with exact cash or cheque only. No registration will be held via phone, email, or social media requests.
