Description
 Do you feel stressed much of the time or like you can’t quite catch your breath? If so, you’re not alone. But, do you know that there are simple yet highly effective ways to help the body and mind alleviate the effects of daily stress? Want to learn how to tap into the body’s natural ability to fight stress in a variety of ways already within you? Join Danielle Casioppo, Health Educator for Being Well at Yale, in this evidence-based program, consisting of gentle chair-based and standing yoga postures, breathing techniques, mindfulness principles and guided meditation. Participants should wear comfortable clothing, suitable for movement, office casual is fine. Beginners welcome! No equipment needed. Please plan to attend all sessions as each class builds off the last.

If the series is full, please register anyway so that you will be added to the waitlist for the next possible series.

What participants are saying: "This series gave us easy-to-learn tools that we could use in our offices to relieve stress, which was especially beneficial in our department given the stress of a recent move. It also brought together people from throughout our department with some of our new neighbors, so it helped give us a sense of community in our new space, too." - Martin Kurth, Associate University Librarian for Technical Services
