Try free yoga to destress through finals and on Wednesdays this summer

Submitted by Kathryn Harth

Take a break from the end-of-semester crunch and carve out a little “me time” with 45 minutes of re-energizing yoga in the middle of your day.

The group will meet from 12:05-12:50 p.m. Tuesday through Friday for the next two weeks. The summer schedule will begin the week of May 16 — check the university calendar for the schedule. The studio is in 301 Ahearn Field House.

Noontime Yoga is for all levels and abilities and is free to attend. This volunteer-based program provides an outlet for students, staff, faculty and community members to practice yoga together in a friendly, non-competitive environment.

To get to the studio, enter Ahearn Field House from College Heights Road using the entrance with the word "Gymnasium" over the doors. There is a stairwell immediately to your left; take the stairs to the third floor.

The group's yoga leaders are volunteers from K-State and the community. All are welcome and there are no requirements to attend — just bring your own yoga mat. Show up when you can, even if you are a little late or leave a little early. 

Yoga improves strength, balance, and flexibility, and it can help manage stress, increase energy and lead to better sleep. Our noontime yoga community has been going strong for nearly 20 years and gives K-Staters a mid-day break from the stresses of class and work.

To stay up to date about schedules, cancellations and upcoming events, join the K-State Noontime Yoga Facebook Group and/or sign up for the Noontime Yoga ListServ.

Noontime Yoga is sponsored by Nonviolence Studies and Programs and UFM Community Learning Center.
