Fall Wellness Offerings Include Meditation, Lunchtime Yoga

If you’re looking to strengthen your mind or body this fall, there are two wonderful opportunities available to UMW faculty, staff, and secondary cardholders. One opportunity begins tomorrow (sign up quickly!) and the other begins mid-October. Read below to see if either of these options are a good fit for you this semester:

Intro to Mindfulness Meditation Course

Starts tomorrow, September 25!

Session Dates: Sept. 25 – Nov. 13

Meeting Times: Tuesdays, 6:00pm-7:30pm

Location: Trinkle B-39, Leidecker Center

Cost: $15 (but you can get your money back in the form of a UMW bookstore gift card if you attend 6/7 classes)

Description: Learn more about what mindfulness really is, practice meditation, and reap the benefits of giving yourself a few minutes each day to be fully still. Mindful meditation is proven to lead to a calmer, more focused mind. It also reduces stress, enhances self-awareness, and offers a greater sense of inner peace and connectedness with life.
