A special yoga class focused on wellness, stress management and increased flexibility will be offered as part of a non-credit community course offering at Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) this Fall.

“It would also be appropriate for any individual who has just experienced a change in lifestyle, such as career switch or retirement, and who is interested in beginning a gradual path to bettered health and wellness,” she added.
