Come and “Pose Your Heart Out” at UTC Campus Recreation’s
1st annual Yogathon as we raise money for the American Heart Association.  UTC’s Aquatic and Recreation Center will be offering three solid hours of heart healthy yoga, giveaways, and live music as we host local yoga studios.  Your admission fee gets you in for the entire event and this exciting opportunity is open to the Chattanooga community at only $10 a person and $5 for current UTC students.  100% of the proceeds go to the American Heart Association.  No preregistration required (cash/checks only).
Drop in or stay the entire time on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 from 4:30pm until 7:30pm.  Whether you enjoy relaxation and meditation, toning and strengthening, or if you have just began your yoga practice, this event is for you!  As you empower yourself and heal personally, you will also be assisting the American Heart Association by raising awareness and funds to empower and heal others who are impacted by heart disease. 
Come show us your best pose!

Belly Dancing

 It’s back!! This unique class features low-impact movement focused in the torso, hips, thighs, and glutes. The most obvious benefit is an incredible core muscle work-out that develops muscles you might not even know you have. Belly dance increases overall flexibility, but especially in the hips and spine, which as we get older tend to be the first things to stiffen up.  It also increases stamina while strengthening, toning, and sculpting. Aside from the physical benefits, Belly Dance is a GREAT way to relieve stress and clear the mind.  No previous experience necessary!

Suzanne Rambo from Zanzibar Studio will be here beginning Thursday 2/25 in the ARC's Large Aerobics Room for a special 6 week demo.  

Belly Dancing will take place Thursdays at 8:15pm during the Spring Semester.
February 25 - April 7
(Excluding March 17)
