Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or you struggle to touch your toes, join us in celebrating National Yoga Month this September! From relaxation to stress relief to strength building, yoga’s many benefits promote a happier and healthier lifestyle. Apart from getting you moving, practicing yoga can improve your mental health by making you stronger both mentally and physically. So why not give it a try?
To celebrate, we’re teaming up with the UW Recreational Sports Programs. During the whole month of September, you’ll find a variety of yoga-centered activities (in-person and virtual) to help you get centered.
Here’s what you can expect:
- Free yoga classes at locations across a few campuses (including the IMA, the HUB, Harborview, South Campus Center, UW Bothell,)
- A main event celebrating the end of Yoga Month in the HUB Ballroom with Lululemon
- A yoga and football experience at Husky Stadium sponsored by UW Athletics (discounted Husky football tickets included!)
- Social media inspiration and contests: Snap a picture of your favorite position or location to practice and share it with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter using #wholeuyoga, or via email
- Prizes: Those who register for the main celebration in the HUB Ballroom will receive a Whole U yellow tennis yoga ball
- Virtual lessons on yoga, like last year’s videos from IMA instructors, our desk yoga series, and be sure to sign up for the yoga pose of the day handout
- A chance to experience different forms of yoga, such as vinyasa and hatha flow
