Postdoc Yoga!!

The winter 2012 semester of PDA yoga will start on Tuesday 31st January and run for 10 weeks until April 3rd. Classes are held from 5:15-7:00 in room 460 of the LSK building (333 Agricultural Road) and are taught by Andrea MacDonald, a registered yoga teacher since 2003 (please see her website for more information about her training and teaching philosophy).

The cost for for participants who sign up for the full session of classes will be $86.25 (the class will only run if we have 8 or more participants, but if there is significantly more than 8 participants we will reduce the price!).Drop-in participants are also welcome at a price of $12/class.

The class currently has participants with a wide range of skill levels and new participants are always welcome. Andrea offers modifications of each pose so you can work at your own skill level, and she is able to accommodate any physical restrictions and to make sure you avoid any past injuries.

Please note that you will have to supply your own yoga mat although we do have 1 or 2 that can be lent out if you forget yours/want to give the class a try before buying your own. Mats can be bought from most department stores (e.g., London Drugs), specialty yoga stores (Halfmoon Yoga and Lululemon) or from the UBC gym.

As an added bonus, the class is a great way to meet other postdocs and RAs at UBC, and we schedule regular “extra-relaxation” sessions after class outings at our favourite eating/drinking establishments.

Please don’t hesitate to e-mail me with any questions. If you are interested then send me a quick e-mail to let me know if you plan on joining the full-session or just dropping in.

Hope to see you all on January 31st!
