Free yoga at UHS returns this fall

August 24, 2011

The free Student Health Tune-up series at University Health Services (UHS) returns this fall with two weekly sessions. Students can take a yoga class from 4 to 5 p.m. and from 5 to 6 p.m. each Thursday beginning Sept. 1. The classes are held in 205 Student Health Center.

"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 will introduce students to yoga basics. Not only can yoga help students relax, it can improve overall flexibility and fitness level. The series is part of UHS' commitment to helping students get -- and stay -- healthy during their years at Penn State.

The yoga sessions are walk-in only; no advanced reservations will be accepted. Space is limited and admission is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
