Exercise Science Student of the Week

 Student of the Week: Megan Edlin

Megan's Story:

I started out as a dancer when I was eight years old. We always did a little bit of yoga at the end of class but it was never much more than that. I danced up until I graduated high school and then struggled to find a way to stay active. At the end of my first semester of college a friend of mine told me that she was going to take a yoga class for her wellness credit and asked me if I wanted to take it with her. When I signed up for yoga 127 I had no idea that I would fall in love with it. Starting your day with yoga just sets the tone for the rest of it. You're relaxed as you go to your next class and I feel like I have a much better time focusing. I wasn't taking care of myself as well as I should have been during my first semester of college but after yoga I feel like I am better in tune with my body and I just feel better all- around as a person. It's a great way to stay active as well as get in touch with your body and your mind.
