Yoga for Mental Health
Join Shelby Dwyer, UHCS Licensed Mental Health Counselor and yoga teacher, as she offers a virtual weekly live 60-minute yoga group in partnership with the Center for Spirituality Dialogue and Service. Click here to stream live every Monday from 4-5pm (excluding Monday holidays), and access archived live recordings here.
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 – pranayama techniques – will also offer another simple and accessible way to manage symptoms of anxiety or depression.
No previous yoga experience required. Attend as many sessions as you’d like at your leisure.
