Free Hatha Yoga Sessions to Be Offered at Penn College


The Technology Transfer Center at Pennsylvania College of Technology will offer a series of seven hatha yoga asana practice sessions Nov. 26 through Dec. 19.

The free sessions, which will be held on the stage of the Klump Academic Center auditorium, will be offered from 4:45 to 6:15 p.m. on Nov. 26 and Dec. 3, 10, 12, 17 and 19. The session on Saturday, Dec. 14, will be held from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

The sessions are being offered at no cost so that regular practitioners may continue to practice and new students may explore hatha yoga asana in a structured setting. Regularly scheduled hatha yoga classes for beginning and advanced students are scheduled to start in January. The cost for those six-week sessions is $40.

The free classes being offered through Dec. 19 will provide a regular intensive hatha yoga practice for those with less than two or three years of yoga experience. Some previous yoga experience is desirable. Though this is not an introductory class, beginners may register, and they will be given individual attention as needed. The sessions will include a review of the fundamental asana (posture) and a general asana practice and deep relaxation.

The focus of the sessions will be to examine asana practice as it relates to posture, balance, flexibility, strength, skeletal and muscular integrity, health benefits, relieving tension and the restorative qualities of yoga asana. This general practice will include standing poses; abdominal strengthening and energizing; seated, prone and supine poses; backward bends; forward bends; twists; restorative postures; deep relaxation; breathing practices (pranayama); and meditation. To register for these free sessions call the TTC at (570) 327-4775.

The following Hatha Yoga classes are scheduled to begin the week of Jan. 13:

Introduction to Yoga Part 1 A Beginning Practice: This six-week session will provide a comprehensive introduction to the hatha yoga. This includes a review of fundamental asana for a solid foundation practice. No experience is necessary for this introductory level class.

Introduction to Yoga Part 2 A Foundation Practice: This second six-week session will provide a further introduction to the art and science of hatha yoga. This class is a continuation and expansion of fundamental asana for a solid foundation practice. Each class will include asana (posture) practice and deep relaxation. Some experience is necessary.

Hatha Yoga Asana Part 3 Developing a Regular Practice: This six-week session will provide a regular intensive hatha yoga practice for those that have three years or less of regular yoga practice. The sessions will focus on a sequence of 33 asana (poses) for flexibility, strength and balance. Some experience is necessary.

Hatha Yoga Asana Intensive: These yoga sessions will provide an intensive hatha yoga practice for regular practitioners. This will include a review of the fundamental asana and a broader exploration of yoga practice. Completion of Yoga 1, 2 and 3 or permission of the instructor is required. Experience is necessary.
