Yoga isn’t as easy as it might appear.

“There are a number of movements and positions that really make you sweat,” says John Farquhar, the manager of multimedia and Web development in Academic Technology at Western.

Farquhar has been attending the free noon yoga classes in Gym A at Carver Gym for about a month.

“I have two kids at home, and ever since they’ve come along, I haven’t had time to exercise,” he says. “To be able to fit something into the middle of the day allows me to spend more time with my kids.”

Jere Hawn is shipping out.

Hawn, manager of the Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management program in the Department of Decision Sciences, is being involuntarily recalled to active duty with the U.S. Navy.

He leaves in late May for a 500-day deployment, much of which will be spent on the ground in Afghanistan.

Though Hawn does have combat experience from his previous stint with the Navy, this will be an entirely new experience for him, he said.
