Beginner paced yoga class with a focus on building strength, flexibility, stamina, and balance. Students will learn healthy and healing body alignment in and through yoga poses -- breaking poses down so that new or refreshing students can understand how classical yoga postures work and how to implement them in a home practice. Students learn breath awareness and the therapeutic benefits of synching movement with breath. Appropriate for individuals interested in a traditional yoga class, including first time students. Instructors are able to show modifications for each pose and for general health concerns.

"Caught in the Act: Direct Measurement of Protein Translocation Across Membranes"
Key Lecture Points:
· Directed macromolecular transport across membranes key in 21st century medicine
· We employ a model membrane to quantitate transport as a function of lipids and forces
· Membrane asymmetry can be a driving force for carrier-mediated transport
· We also measure protein transport through toxins
· On route to mechanistic studies of proton-powered Brownian Ratchet
· Model membrane also used for screening ion channel/drug interactions
· Developed a teaching kit based on model membrane system
