ACT 150 - Beginning Yoga

Credit(s): 1

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to Hatha Yoga physical exercise. The Yoga postures exercise every part of the body, stretching and toning the muscles and joints, the spine and the entire skeletal system. Postures also work on the internal organs, glands and nerves. By releasing physical and mental tension, they also liberate vast resources of energy as well as maintaining the balance between the mind and the body. This course may be repeated for a total of two credits. Students receiving financial aid or veterans’ benefits should check with the Financial Aid Office before repeating this course. (Fall and Spring Semesters)
