CARC to offer March Mindfulness Featuring Yoga

The Garrett College Community Aquatic and Recreation Complex (CARC) invites the community to forget march madness and join the CARC for March Mindfulness with a month full of yoga. Enjoy an unlimited pass at a special price for any or all of the March yoga classes. Yoga classes are offered Tuesdays at 5:15 PM, as well as Wednesdays and Fridays at 12 noon. All classes are 60-minutes in length.

The classes focus on breath, strength, and flexibility, and are suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Participants will practice hatha yoga as a form of physical exercise that challenges and refines flexibility, strength and balance while also learning to control breathing in a relaxed and modulated way in order to provide focus in the different postures. Haley Gillespie instructs the Tuesday evening class, and Kelli Sisler instructs the Wednesday and Friday classes. 

Gillespie is a Southern High School graduate and University of Maryland alum. She went on to earn a Master’s of Science in Nutrition & Health Promotion from Simmons College. She has been a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor for over seven years and worked with clients of all ages and abilities in Western Maryland, Southern California and Seattle. Her approach to fitness is holistic – working to help individuals achieve healthy body weight, correct muscle imbalances, improve flexibility, and elevate overall health through nutrition. Her workouts focus on functional movement, core strengthening, and interval training. In her free time, she is an avid skier, cyclist and golfer.

Sisler has a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering and a Master’s degree in Business Administration. She has danced and twirled baton since the age of five. She began teaching baton and dance at the age of 16 assisting her former instructor and also teaching at the Uniontown, PA YMCA. In college, she twirled and danced for the Penn State Blue Band as a member of the Touch of Blue Majorette squad. Currently, she is the Institutional and Effectiveness Coordinator at Garrett College but continues to teach various Dance, Zumba and Yoga classes in Garrett County. She utilizes her engineering background and applies mechanics and physics to body mechanics while teaching dance. Proper technique to prevent injuries is most important to her.
