Yoga classes will be offered at KC for first time, will count as college credit



 



For the first time, Kilgore College students can take yoga as a kinesiology elective.



 



Beginning

yoga courses will be offered both in Kilgore and Longview this fall,

and the courses will count toward physical education requirements to

graduate with an associate’s degree.



 



Kilgore

yoga classes will be offered in Parks Fitness Center, and Longview

classes will be offered at Good Shepherd Medical Centers’ Institute for

Healthy Living on Hawkins Parkway.



 



Cecile Craft, KC’s yoga instructor, said she is excited that the college has made yoga a part of its kinesiology curriculum.



 



“Yoga

is a true healing art,” Craft said. “It increases lung capacity and

improves balance, coordination and flexibility. All of the benefits of

yoga are too numerous to mention, but it is especially important for a

healthy back, stress reduction and teaches students to live in the

moment.”



 



Kilgore

yoga classes will be offered this fall from 9 to 9:50 a.m. on Mondays,

Wednesdays and Fridays – and 11 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. on Tuesdays and

Thursdays – in Room 109 of the Parks Fitness Center.



 



Longview yoga classes will be offered this fall from 3 to 4:20 p.m. at the Institute for Healthy Living.



 



For more information, contact Craft at 903-315-8805 or e-mail her: cecilesc@aol.com.



 



Early

Registration for the fall is under way until Aug. 9.  Late Registration

is set for Aug. 16-17 on both the Kilgore and Longview campuses.
