Yoga is an ancient practice that’s still wildly popular today.
“I felt parts of me stretching that I didn’t think could stretch,” said Jackson Township resident Jerry Pacis.
It’s a new experience for Pacis who signed up for a Hackensack Meridian Health free yoga class. The class is offered just about every month at the Freehold Raceway Mall.
“As an asthmatic, it got me to be aware of inhaling deep and letting it out,” Pacis said.
“They’re just touching the tip of the iceberg of the health benefits of yoga,” said Jersey Shore University Medical Center OB/GYN Dr. Rebecca Cipriano.
