VIRGINIA KEY, Fla. (August 07, 2014) — Overlooking Biscayne Bay, yoga instructor Annamarie Salemi gently issues commands on what posture to take, and how the back and hands will be aligned to the ground. In the distance, powerboats scoot across the Bay, and a settling sun creeps toward the western sky.

Welcome to Well ‘Canes Yoga Wednesdays, sponsored by the University of Miami Human Resources and Wellness Centers, a program aimed at strengthening bodies and relaxing minds with an hour of exercise. Held once a month on each of the University’s three campuses, it is offered free to staff, faculty, and students.

On a recent Wednesday afternoon, Salemi taught the class amidst the beautiful surroundings of the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science campus.

From its fledgling beginnings in the 1940s, RSMAS has evolved into one of the leading academic oceanographic and atmospheric research institutions in the world. Located off the Rickenbacker Causeway, the campus is part of a specially designated 65-acre marine research and education park, and home to the 96-foot research vessel F.G. Walton Smith – named in honor of the school’s founder.
