HTCC News – Yoga Classes

at Hindu Temple

every Sunday at 10 AM (starts 9-10-2017)

Dear Devotees:

Are you interested in getting stronger and becoming more flexible? Are you looking to find a way to reduce the stress in your life and find more peace? Would you like to meet new friends and practice a new skill? Look no further, Yoga classes will be beginning at the Hindu Temple on September 10, 2017.

They will be held every Sunday at 10 AM for an hour in Temple basement. Each student is requested to donate a minimum of $15 per month to Hindu Temple. It is tax deductible. A receipt for the total donation during the year will be provided in January 2018. The student will have to complete an enrollment form, providing name and contact information, a declaration that his/her doctor has not indicated any condition that precludes performing yoga and a declaration that the student will be responsible for using his/her insurance in case medical attention is needed and will not hold Hindu Temple or the teachers responsible. The form can be completed during the first class.

Yoga classes will be offered for any/all age groups. All skill levels are welcome! For those who are just beginning the practice of yoga, you will practice basic poses & become familiar with your breathing, all in a supportive & friendly environment. Yoga classes will be comprised of regular poses (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayam) & meditation. We will practice yoga with intricate breathing. Yoga can also help us to relieve stress, increase strength & flexibility, and increase energy levels. Participants will be required to bring a yoga mat, strap and a yoga block (available at most stores and on-line).
Yoga can help open, strengthen, and calm us.

The classes will be taught by Dr. Raghu Bhattacharya. He received a Ph. D. in Electronic Materials from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India in 1983. He came to USA in 1984 as a post-doc. He joined National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado and has held increasingly responsible positions since then.

Raghu has been teaching Yoga at NREL since 1990. He has offered his service to teach Yoga at Hindu Temple to primarily benefit the community and the temple.

If you are interested, please contact Sudhir Verma, a Trustee of HTCC for many years, who will coordinate the program and also teach Yoga to the class. His phone number is 720-323-7799 and his email address is Sudhir “Yogi” Verma – real.tor@hotmail.com .

Hope to see a large Yoga class at the temple every Sunday.

With Regards,

Mahesh Jha
Interim President – HTCC
