Why Practice Yoga?

When asked, “Why should one practice Yoga?”, my mind runs through all the amazing physical benefits of learning and working through different yoga poses, and how it keeps my arms and legs toned and helps strengthen my core, and how it relieves stress and mental anxiety.

Exercise and Immunity

If you’ve been following the news, you know the drill: wash your hands thoroughly, cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow, clean surfaces thoroughly, self-isolate if you think you’ve been in contact with an infected person. Until a vaccine is developed, these are the recommendations for preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Breathing Techniques and Benefits

Breathing happens naturally on a regular basis. So why should you practice breathing exercises, better known as pranayama? Pranayama comes from the Sanskrit words “prana,” which means breath or life force and “ayama,” which means to extend or expand. When combined together, they mean extension of life force.

Kroc Membership Update (3/26)

Dear Kroc Greenville Family,

As we have all felt the impact of the outbreak in one way or another, we hope that you are staying well and healthy during this time. We are looking forward to when we will be able to open our doors to our members and our entire community once again.

In the meantime, we hope you are taking advantage of our social media workouts on Facebook each day. Our talented fitness instructors are working hard to provide quality classes to help you stay motivated. Additionally, many members of our Kroc Team are helping to pick up donated goods from the community to assist those in need. We are grateful for the support from families throughout Greenville.

Taking care of our members is a top priority. We could not exist without your support. We hope that you will continue to support Kroc Greenville during this time by continuing your memberships. As you know, the Kroc Center is a nonprofit community center serving a broad spectrum of the Greenville populace. Because of generous contributions from our members and others, we are able to continue our community based mission of extending our services and opportunities to members that lack financial means and would otherwise not be able to participate in the Kroc Center’s activities. Your continued support and membership is important for us to continue that mission.

If you pay on a month-to-month basis, please keep your account open. We understand that not everyone is able to do so at this time. If you need to place your membership payment for May on hold, please reach out to the Membership Team by April 10, 2020, by contacting lisa.richardson@uss.salvationarmy.org

At this time, we anticipate Kroc Greenville will be closed through May 17, 2020. We will continue to follow the recommendations put forth by local, state and federal officials. If conditions improve, we will consider opening Kroc Greenville or the Tennis Center earlier. We hope to see our Kroc Greenville family sooner than later, and wish you all the best.

Sincerely,

The Kroc Greenville Team
