September is National Yoga Month

Yoga is a mind and body practice with historical origins in ancient Indian philosophy. Like other meditative movement practices used for health purposes, various styles of yoga typically combine physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation.

Many people who practice yoga do so to maintain their health and well-being, improve physical fitness, relieve stress, and enhance quality of life. In addition, they may be addressing specific health conditions, such as back pain, neck pain, arthritis and anxiety.

In celebration of National Yoga Month, the Division of Amenities and Transportation Services, in partnership with the R&W Fitness Center, will be offering free yoga-related events in the month of September including sunrise yoga classes, yoga for lower back pain, a mindfulness workshop and more. For a full list of events and times, please visit Wellness@NIH beginning September 3.
