Description of classes #
Stærke ansatte #
This class involves circuit strength training that challenges your core muscles, strength and condition. 5 working periods à 5 min. Each station has 2–3 exercises that challenge different groups of muscles. The exercises are performed one after the other without pause, and with a difficulty that is adapted to your physical shape.
Wear good shoes. Remember to bring a bottle of water.
Yoga Classes for NTNU Employees will involve both physical poses and breathing exercises, as well as a short mindfulness practice to tackle the physical and psychological effects of work environment and work stress on employees. A typical class will start with some gentle physical practice and will be followed by a relaxation section that may include some breathing exercise and/or a few minutes of mindfulness. The classes will be suitable for most people.
Although there will be some progression in the physical poses throughout the course, each class will be individually designed so that continuous following will not be completely necessary. Therefore, the participants can easily adjust the class, even after missing a class or two; though, they are encouraged to join the classes as often as they can.
