UNC-Chapel Hill Campus Recreation will be offering employee-only fitness classes to all faculty and staff at UNC-Chapel Hill free of charge beginning August 28.

These classes – including Tai-Chi, Yoga, cardio, and more – will either be held on campus at the Rams Head Recreation Center or the Student Recreation Center (SRC).

Tai-Chi & Mindful Yoga Evenings

Time: Tuesdays at 4:00 p.m. & 5:15 p.m.

Tai-Chi (4:00 – 5:00 p.m.)
Slow down and enjoy what the Chinese call the “supreme ultimate exercise”! Tai chi is a form of ancient Chinese exercise that involves slow continuous movement through the joints.

Health Benefits: Practicing Tai Chi regularly has shown to reduce stress, improve balance, reduce falls, strengthen bones and increase focus and concentration.

Mindful Yoga (5:15 – 6:15 p.m.)
Incorporates a slower, deeper approach to the yoga practice that builds inner awareness and presence.

Health Benefits: Practicing yoga regularly has shown to increase flexibility, strength and movement. Mindful yoga is particularly helpful for stress reduction and finding a sense of calm and balance.
