By Staff

Monday was a picture perfect day for yoga on the east lawn of Building 500 on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Everyone was invited to participate in the free session hosted by the Health and Wellness Center now under construction.

Coming in the spring of 2012, the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center will be an innovative, state-of-the art research, education and patient care facility located on the Anschutz Medical Campus.

The center’s mission is to empower individuals, communities and organizations to make sustainable changes to achieve healthier lifestyles so that high obesity rates and chronic disease no longer reflect the way we live as a society.

Today's session serves as a sneak preview of just one of the various types of group exercise classes that Center users will be offered.

Angela Ewari, owner and director of Running Yogini, lead the session using easy techniques that can be done practically anywhere to help eliminate daily stress. Yoga is not only a great workout – it is also one of the best exercises you can do to help reduce your stress levels.
