Students will be empowered to make wise choices, meet challenges, and develop positive behaviors in fitness, wellness, and movement activity for a lifetime.
Yoga & Meditation
Yoga & Meditation is a complete mind/body experience. With a portion of the class dedicated to mindful movement, and another portion dedicated to intentionally tuning into the breath and body through meditation, this class will leave you clear-minded and relaxed.
This course combines cardiorespiratory activities and flexibility exercises to help educate students on the importance of fitness as a lifetime activity. The course focus is based on physical fitness as outlined through individual goals set by each student. For example- walk/run intervals, couch to 5K, and a variety of aerobic activities based on the classes interest. Activities could include; aerobics, Zumba, step, ect.
