U.S. Navy Crew Enjoy Yoga
Crew of the USS Bonhomme Richard have been practicing yoga on the ship’s flight deck since mid-July, according to Lt. Diana Tersak, who organized the weekly sessions. The class instructor, Lt. Krysten Pelstring, says, “The first session was fantastic. We filled up flight deck triage, and everyone seemed very satisfied with their first shipboard experience. I’m pretty sure people were relaxed.”
Tersak initiated the classes to help sailors rest mind and body after 6 days per week of physical training. The class will be offered weekly on Sundays.
