Catch the Free Yoga Classes on Wednesdays in CEBAF Center

As a JAG activity, Joe Beaufait, Physics Division, is offering free, all-level yoga classes on Wednesdays in CEBAF Center. The classes run from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and take place in one of three areas of CC: the auditorium, or conference room F113 or F224/225.

Joe is a 200-hour certified yoga instructor. He describes this all-level class as friendly to the beginner, but offers plenty of challenges for those who want to push themselves. Yoga is a great way to lower blood pressure, lose weight, gain flexibility and reduce stress, he adds.

If you are interested, just bring a yoga mat, and wear easy-to-move-in clothing to the class.

If you’d like notification, let Jodi Patient, CEBAF Center receptionist, know and she’ll post the classes to your zimbra calendar.
