UHS adds additional free yoga sessions

September 12, 2011

The free Student Health Tune-up series at University Health Services (UHS) will expand to four weekly sessions beginning Monday, Sept. 19. Students can take a yoga class from 4 to 5 p.m. and from 5 to 6 p.m. each Monday and Thursday this fall. The classes are held in 205 Student Health Center on Penn State's University Park campus.

"The yoga sessions have been incredibly popular," said Linda LaSalle, associate director for educational services at UHS. "We began the series last fall and attendance has grown each semester, making a second session necessary to accommodate the demand.”

Each week local instructors Amy Rumbel and Karla Hudecek introduce students to yoga basics. Not only can yoga help students relax, it can improve overall flexibility and fitness level. The series -- available on a first-come, first-serve basis -- is part of UHS’ commitment to helping students get and stay healthy during their years at Penn State.
