Special Programs are a HUGE part of the UTC Fitness program. Below are the programs
being offered Spring 2016.
"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
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!
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.
