TEMPLE (June 21, 2013)--The Summit Fitness Center hosted a free yoga event to celebrate the summer solstice Friday.
“Yoga is non-violent and non-competitive and our motto is “no pain, no pain,” Yoga Instructor Amandah Alamo said. “It is important to just do what you can and be comfortable without pain and enjoy the company and energy of the class.”
Every year, yoga participants gather to celebrate the sun, summer, and the dedication of yoga on the summer solstice.
“Yoga can improve flexibility, weight loss, and strength, but it is much greater than that,” Alamo said. “It helps the mind and can reduce stress and anxiety.”
All participants received a free T-shirt in honor of the event.
