Yoga releases stress at Cabrini

Right now, Cabrini is one of the most stressful aspects of my life, and I’m sure that many people can agree. It wasn’t an easy transition from the long summer break back in to the busy lifestyle of school. One of the best things that I have done to give myself a break from school and relax is sign up for a yoga class with my friends.

I think that it is a great idea to take advantage of the different activities and classes that the Dixon Center offers. Trying to take a yoga class somewhere else, for instance at a studio, can get pricey. At the Dixon center, not only do you take the class for free, but also everything that you need is provided for you including mats and bands.

This was the first time that I have ever attempted to do yoga. It’s difficult and picking it up is going to take some time, but I like the idea of getting to try new things. I like knowing that if I decide a certain class isn’t for me, I can simply let the instructor know and stop going. This way I haven’t wasted any money or time paying fees or buying equipment.

What I love about the class is how the instructor takes the aerobics room and transforms it into a yoga friendly atmosphere despite the commotion of the gym right next door. She keeps the lights turned off and closes the blinds. She also lights incense and puts relaxing music on in the background. At the end of class she walks around and puts lavender oil in everyone’s hands. She really makes an effort to make the class as enjoyable and relaxing as she can.

So at the beginning of every week my friends and I go to yoga and it is such a great way to start off the week. I leave the class feeling completely energized, which is great because right after yoga I head to the newsroom for layout, so I need all the energy I can get.
