‘Yoga at the Bay’ during National Yoga Month

Cidny Chaparro/Contributing writer

September is National Yoga month and the student health services at the Biscayne Bay Campus will celebrate by offering the student Yoga on the Bay. The event will take place on Sept. 13 behind the recreational center from 10 a.m to 11:30 a.m. and it will be taught by yoga instructor Bonnie Quiceno, who has been providing yoga classes for FIU alumni four times a week for over a year now at the Recreational Center.

Yoga classes aren’t new to BBC. However, it is the first time the class will be given outdoors.

“Bonnie’s classes are incredible,” said Donny Boulanger, global strategic communications major, who has been attending Quiceno’s yoga classes at the Bay since January. “Her yoga classes are unique and always different because she asks her students for special requests at the beginning of class.”

The event can also provide students who have never taken a yoga class at the Bay with an insight of what the classes are like with instructor Quicero during the week.

“Many alumni enjoy Yoga at the Bay and it is a great stress relief technique,” said Sarah Kenneally, Student Health Services Coordinator.

The Student Health staff provide mats for the yoga class, but they will be giving free sports bottles for attending. Make sure to bring athletic attire and refreshments. According to Kenneally, there is no requirement and no registration for students to attend the class. The class is free and space is unlimited. In the event it rains, class would be moved indoors to the Recreational Center. For questions and further info on the event, please contact Sarah Kenneally of Student Health Services at (305) 919-5620 ext. 4.
