Hatha and Vinyasa yoga incorporate many of the same poses. Vinyasa moves at a faster pace and breath is used to coordinate movement flowing from one pose to the next. Hatha yoga allows for more stretching because it is done more slowly and poses are held for longer.

Course Material Affordability Tips

Start searching and shopping as soon as possible: the sooner you start looking for required course materials, and the more places you look, the more likely you are to find affordable options.

Don’t forget the College Library: while the Library cannot purchase traditional, commercial textbooks (i.e. Intro to Microeconomics, 12th ed.), they do have thousands of books and movies commonly assigned in courses, and many of them are available electronically (ebooks and streaming films). Run a search in Discover. If you need help searching, just ask! They can also try to get the work from another library through Interlibrary Loan.

Rent books when possible and advisable: check if there are rental options available and consider if you will need or want to refer to the book in the future. For example, buying may be more cost effective if you will use the same book next module or semester, as with some language courses.

Ask your professor about your options: F&M professors are aware that course materials can be very expensive and often answer questions about whether a different edition, version, or translation is acceptable. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or tell them if you can’t get or access required materials.

Email Chris Barnes or Susan Knoll: Chris is the Scholarly Communications Librarian and runs the F&M Textbook Affordability Initiative in conjunction with representatives from the Diplomatic Congress. He and I will do everything we can to help you get the course materials you need to succeed.
