Give yourself a mid-week boost during Wellness Wednesdays with other staff and faculty members. Awaken and realign the body and mind with a grounding meditation, nourishing breath practice, and supportive movement. Ease any stress or strain, maintain energy, enhance wellbeing, and perhaps feel a sense of wholeness.
During this short, weekly session, practice a similar 25-30-minute sequence for 4-6 weeks, so the body and mind can move more easily without needing to think too hard. There will be some time afterwards, if you would like to share or debrief about your experience.
*Participants are asked: to dress comfortably, to prepare a Yoga mat and any other supports (e.g. blocks, strap, water bottle, small towel), and to maintain a safe setting for all by arriving punctually and staying until the practice is complete.
Note: The continued use of masks in the building is encouraged. Please continue to monitor your health and do not visit campus if you are feeling unwell. Masks and sanitizer will be available for use by participants at this event.
