Texas A&M University-San Antonio’s JagFit free virtual workout classes include yoga on Zoom.

Psychology senior Nadia Padron teaches Restorative Yoga and Vinyasa Flow. 

Padron said she is helping students and people around San Antonio relieve stress through a “gentle practice.”

Amid a global pandemic, various political issues and economic uncertainty, taking a few hours to meditate with yoga can help alleviate stress, Padron said.

“It has taught me so much about life. …Yoga is about love and acceptance,” Padron said.

All levels are welcome to join “Restorative Yoga” at 8 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through Zoom. 

“It takes letting go of [your] expectations,” Padron said.

Padron teaches another class, “Vinyasa Flow,” for those looking for a more fast-paced class at noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The links are available on her website. Padron recommends having a blanket, pillow or a yoga mat in preparation for her class.
