Join Shelby Dwyer, UHCS Licensed Mental Health Counselor and certified yoga teacher, as she offers a virtual weekly live 60-minute yoga group in partnership with the Center for Spirituality Dialogue and Service (CSDS). In these live sessions, you’ll learn how to manage symptoms of stress and maintain mental wellness through different forms of meditation and the incorporation of gentle yoga postures, all of which can become staples in a simple self-care practice. Each week you’ll gather tangible and easily accessible techniques to reduce stress, improve sleep, alleviate intrusive symptoms, and learn to connect with sensations within your body. Specific postures will offer ways of alleviating the physical symptoms that come along with stress, poor sleep, depression, etc. Mindfulness through awareness of breath, a mantra, meditation, or physical movement will also offer another way to manage symptoms of anxiety or depression.
No previous yoga experience required. Attend as many sessions as you’d like.
Sessions will also be streamed live in The Sacred Space and up to 10 students can attend to practice in-person. CSDS is requesting that students to supply their own yoga mat and props to practice within the space.
