UNM-LA has yoga classes to suit everyone this fall
Who needs yoga? According to UNM-Los Alamos yoga instructor, Siri Deva Khalsa, the answer is “everyone.”
“The more civilization progresses, the more we need yoga,” he said.
For the young, yoga provides mental discipline and good techniques to discipline the mind.
“Yoga is the perfect antidote to electronic media,” Khalsa said. “While modern media scatters your attention, yoga has the opposite effect.” It helps you focus and relax at the same time.”
Young people want to experience the world in new ways. They seek new experiences and this can lead to high-risk behavior. Yoga, on the other hand, provides a mind-expanding experience along with improved health and flexibility, as well as improved mental discipline, Khalsa said. What a great deal.
For the not so young, yoga has just as many benefits. For older folks and people with injuries, UNM-LA is offering EZ Yoga. This class uses a technique called “chair yoga.”
“For some people, it’s hard to sit on the floor. Students can really get the positions right without being distracted by discomfort when they use a chair,” Khalsa said.
