  • Hatha Yoga

    Read more about the Hatha Yoga event on Jun 29

    Enjoy a complimentary Hatha yoga class brought to you by Alexander Lucas, yoga instructor and post doctoral researcher in the department of Kinesiology!

    This is a beginner and intermediate level yoga class that focuses on teaching the foundations of the practice, including breath, alignment and relaxation. We will begin with basic asana’s (postures) and aim to progress through a series of themed classes. More advanced students are welcome to attend and adjust the class according to their own capacity should they wish. You must bring your own yoga mat to participate.

    About Alex: I have been teaching basic yoga for 5 years and have recently been completing my teacher training in the ShivaShaktiSynthesis program through the Center for Wholeness, a yoga alliance certified 200 hundred hour course. I recently completed my PhD in the department of Kinesiology and am currently working as a post doctoral researcher with the department. My interests in yoga are based on my research focus on healthy lifestyle approaches to managing cancer survivorship and chronic disease in terms of health and quality of life. I aim to teach yoga from a comprehensive understanding of human anatomy and physiology that can lead to a functional appreciation of the practice and its benefits.
