Spotlight on Care: Yoga for Wellness

12:00-1:00pm Wednesday, October 23, 2019 The Commons

Presented by The Commons and the IPSR Center for Compassionate & Sustainable Communities, in collaboration with the Center for Faculty Development and Mentoring, Office of the Provost, the School of Social Welfare, Watkins Health Services, the College Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the School of Public Affairs and Administration, the KU Public Management Center, the Office of Sexuality and Gender Diversity, the Spencer Museum of Art, and KU Counseling and Psychological Services.

Each Wednesday at noon at The Commons, the series will feature a different topic related to well-being and care and include a component of guided practice. The series aims to devote time to considering the ways we practice care as individuals, in communities, and as a campus, full of resources to broaden understanding. It will highlight a variety of aspects of well-being, with special attention to the expectations of higher education.

On October 23, the event will be devoted to better understanding the history and benefits of yoga, with a 25-minute guided yoga session to develop tools that can be implemented off the yoga mat (at your desk, work, and in your daily life). Led by Nikki Cohen, a graduate student in the clinical psychology department.

Light snacks provided.
