Yoga U: Create Your Own Home Practice WORKSHOP

From Shira Engel ’14:

This 2-hour-long workshop will equip you with the skills, inspiration, and knowledge to lead your own yoga classes for your own beautiful selves and bodies. DIY Yoga will empower you to create your own home practice for those days when WesBAM! classes don’t fit into your schedule or for when you want to freestyle it on your mat, but safely and effectively.
Together, we will move, breathe, and discuss the best and most effective ways for starting your own practice and moving like yourself.
This workshop costs $10 and is payable by student account. Email Shira at sengel01[at]wesleyan[dot]edu with your name, WesID, and any questions/requests to reserve a spot and receive your included copy of Yoga U: The College Student’s Tools for Balanced Living, an 100-plus page e-book on personalizing the yoga practice at no extra charge!

Date: Saturday, February 8th
Time: 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM
Place: Fayerweather Theater Room
Cost: $10

Laughter Yoga Playshop

laughter

A message from Jon Lubeck ’14:

Come to a laughter yoga “playshop” on Monday the 9th at 6PM in the Buddhist House Meditation room. The “playshop” will be led by local laughter yoga teacher Mylene Poitras. It should last only about an hour.

Laughter yoga is a practice that combines laughter exercises with controlled breathing and calming movements. It produces endorphins that counter-stress and help bring about relaxation. It’s fun and should be a great way to help us forget about final stress.

Date: Today, December 9, 2013
Time: 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Place: Buddhist House Meditation room
Cost: FREEZ

A WesBAM! Workshop for the Male-Identifying Community

sarahmarshall

From the kick-ass kickboxing superwoman Renee Dunn ’14:

Have you been wanting to try one of our group exercise classes, but feared you might be one of the few male-identifying people in the room? Break away the stigma and get a taste of some of what we have to offer at this FREE event.

The WesBAM! Team strives to provide services to the entire Wesleyan community, but demographically, those who identify as male are underrepresented in our classes. This workshop will move through three of our fitness modalities – TurboKick, CardioKickboxing, and Yoga – tailoring to your bodies and ensuring a comfortable environment in which we’ll be open to your feedback as we strive to make WesBAM! more accessible. Try it out and bring your friends! You’ve got nothing to lose.
