Using Breath to Decrease Stress – Every Friday in June

Our own breath is one of the most effective tools we can use to decrease our stress levels and bring a sense of calm into our lives – particularly during or after stressful situations – so we can perform our best no matter what is going on around us. Join in each Friday to learn how to use your breath as a tool to decrease stress and improve your overall well-being.

Fridays starting June 3rd at 11:00am CST.

Optimize Your Energy – Mondays in June!

If it’s true that lack of sleep and lack of movement can both make us feel tired, how do we choose between rest and exercise? As students we may be balancing many priorities at once, which can contribute to our energy levels feeling low, or experiencing a lack of motivation.

Join Lucia every Monday in June to learn how to optimize your energy by learning when to push and when to pull back as you explore the push and pull muscles of the body.

Mondays, at 12:00pm CST.
