Sunrise Yoga offered at the Champaign Fitness Center


The Champaign Fitness Center joins us to talk the benefits of Yoga.

Sunrise Yoga is offered at the Champaign Fitness Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:15-7:00am.

In the class,the origins and the basics of yoga are explained, especially if there are new members in class, and they go through a few yoga poses step-by-step. 

Yoga is much more than a physical exercise as is commonly understood in the west. The term ‘yoga’ means ‘union’, in particular, it means the union of the mind-body complex that we humans are. Yoga has both an external/physical component, which are the various yogic postures, and a deeper internal/spiritual component of which the mind-body connection is only the first step, which is where we stop. In my class, we begin with a quick warm-up, then go through a series of yoga asanas step-by-step, ending with a relaxation pose at the end. Breathing is an important but often overlooked part of yoga. Folks are reminded of the proper way to breathe and to exhale/inhale at important junctures.
