Warm up with free yoga this winter

Submitted by Kathryn Harth

Start this year focused on your mental and physical well-being. Just 45-minutes on a yoga mat can teach you to quiet your mind with your body.

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.

The group will meet throughout the month of January from 12:05-12:50 p.m. Tuesday through Friday in 301 Ahearn Field House. There are a few exceptions, so be sure to view the schedule. We will update the schedule soon with the plan for the rest of the semester.

The group's yoga leaders are volunteers from K-State and the community. All are welcome and there are no requirements to attend — we even have mats you can borrow if you don't have one or forgot yours. Show up when you can, even if you have to be a little late or need to leave a little early. To get to the studio, simply 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 all the way up to the third floor. We'll be in the studio on your left.

Yoga not only improves strength, balance and flexibility, but it can also 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 midday 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. We will continue to follow K-State COVID-19 guidelines regarding face masks and physical distancing.

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