Eclectic Hatha Yoga 

Yoga is a practice of conscious breathing, movement (asanas), and awareness to achieve health benefits and relaxation. Medical studies show that a regular yoga practice increases flexibility, strength, balance, energy, focus, and endurance; improves posture; and teaches students to manage work and home stress. Class consists of 50 minutes of asana, followed by deep relaxation to integrate the practice. The teacher offers individual assistance during class. This class is most suitable for those students who can easily get up/down from the floor and who have good cardiovascular fitness. Classes are taught by Ellen B. Smith, certified and registered yoga instructor. For more information, contact Ellen at ebsmith@austin.rr.com.
