Free yoga and meditation brings healing to instructor
October 22, 2014 – 1:10 pm | No Comment

For students, there may be many times throughout their college years when stress will get the best of  them. With tests every week and lab reports due, it can be nice to take the time to reevaluate some things.

Yoga is a helpful way to bring clarity and understanding to over-stressed minds and just an overall useful exercise to have on hand. Every Friday at noon, yoga is offered for free in the Wesley Foundation. The hour sessions are not based on instruction but emphasize practice.

When asked about the most important element to yoga and meditation, instructor Ron Barron said breathing is the only way you get through. He approaches listening to your body and it signs in a whole new way. Barron stated that he healed his sciatic nerve not with surgery but with yoga.

There are a few regular yoga students that attend a few times a month, most of which come from many different walks of life. The environment is intimate, thus making it easier for students to focus in and concentrate. The tent-like structure the classes is held in provides a sense of being outdoors without actually being in the elements.

People of all yoga backgrounds are welcome to come check out the free yoga at the Wesley Foundation.
