Kilgore, TX — Kilgore College will once again offer yoga as a kinesiology elective this fall.
Beginning yoga courses will be offered both in Kilgore and Longview, and the courses will count toward physical education requirements to graduate with an associate’s degree.
Kilgore yoga classes will be offered in Parks Fitness Center, and Longview classes will be offered at Good Shepherd Medical Center’s Institute for Healthy Living on Hawkins Parkway.
Cecile Craft, KC’s yoga instructor, said she is excited that the college has made yoga a part of its kinesiology curriculum.
“Yoga is a true healing art,” Craft said. “It increases lung capacity, lengthens muscles and improves balance and coordination.”
Kilgore yoga classes will be offered this fall from 9 to 10 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays – and 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Longview yoga classes will be offered this fall from 3 to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Also, at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, a non-credit yoga class will be held at Parks Fitness Center called “Yoga Stretch.”
