Let’s Get Physical: Summer Continuing Education Classes at STLCC
If the words “physical education” make you think of dodgeball and laps around the track, it’s time to reconsider. This summer, St. Louis Community College’s physical education continuing education courses offer community members the chance to get active and – this time around – have fun.
Backpacking and Hiking (PE: 106 380) Whether you went camping as a child or are looking for a new hobby this summer, the Backpacking and Hiking course offers an introduction to outdoor living skills. Students will learn about menu planning, choice of proper hiking-camping apparel, campsite development, safety and sanitation. Included are also two, one-day trail walks and one weekend camping trip.
Judo (PE: 137 402) Looking for a new way to get in shape? This introductory Judo course will teach the basic techniques of Sport Judo, including standing throws (Naga Waza), grappling techniques (Katame Waza), choking techniques (Shime Waza) and free exercise (Randori).
Yoga (PE: 181 401) This introduction to Hatha Yoga is designed for students of all physical conditions, whether this is your first activity all week or all year.
