Yoga at Exeter is taught in several ways, and choosing one is a matter of preference. Yoga is an individual practice and all students are welcome regardless of previous experience.

Yoga at Exeter is taught in several ways, and choosing one is a matter of preference. Yoga is an individual practice and all students are welcome regardless of previous experience. In both types of yoga, joints, muscles and internal organs benefit from movements that stimulate often-neglected areas of the body. You can expect to improve overall mobility, strength and balance and will probably enjoy stress reduction and a greater sense of well-being, too. Yoga as Meditation, a style sometimes referred to as "gentle yoga," focuses on learning and holding classic asanas (poses), working with the breath (pranayama) and practicing mediation skills in a calm and peaceful environment, allowing the mind and body to quiet. Vinyasa Yoga is for the student who is seeking the same overall benefits as listed above but through a more active sequence of movements.
