UALR has offered her first “for credit” yoga class for the Spring 2011 semester. I have an impressive group of 18 young ladies. Including physical practice, we have reviewed basic yogic thought including:
- Yoga is about joining your mind, body, and spirit.
- Yoga is about getting unstuck. The things that keep humans stuck are fear and pride.
- Listen to your body.
- Let go
All 18 students are still enrolled. All 18 students come on a regular basis. All 18 students are participating and many are offering feedback on a weekly basis. Active learning. Beneficial. Hmmm…did someone mention student success? Retention rates? Is anyone listening?
