Everyday Upskill: Yoga

By popular demand, here is a quick list of yoga training and courses available through our Upskill program. Each resource is a little different, but they all have one thing in common: they're here for a limited time only!

The Courses

LIVE Yoga Instruction for Ages 55+ through Zoom
Head over to GetSetUp and check out their schedule. This is a volunteer led program, with multiple classes in different time zones. Are you an experience yogi looking for a little extra cash to fund that next mat? Get paid to run your own session! GetSetUp has a volunteer program too.

Yoga for the Office (telecommuters too)
LinkedIn Learning has a wide variety of instructional videos. Too many for us to list. I'm a fan of the "zombie arms" routine that I learned last month to keep carpal tunnel at bay.

Last But Not Least...
Looking for something a little more on the academic side? Sign up for Engineering Health: Introduction to Yoga and Physiology in Coursera. That one is offered by the New York University Tandon School of Engineering and has ~54 hours of content to get through.
