"Pose Your Heart Out" 2016 Yogathon

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!


Another goal of our staff is to help our students get certified and push their careers forward. Hosting certifications from the American Red Cross in CPR and Lifeguarding and  AAAI certifications for Fitness Instructor and Personal Training are just some examples of what we offer.
Keep checking back for more opportunities!
Please contact for more information on certifications coming Spring 2016!
