Healthy Yoga at Your Desk

We will be offering sessions of Yoga at Your Desk, lead by Lori Dougherty from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. on:

  • Feb. 12, Usdan, Alumni Lounge
  • March 18, Hassenfeld, Geller Conference Room
  • April 15, Usdan International Lounge
Sessions will focus on breathing exercises, meditation and stretches you can do at your desk. Yoga is not just for those who are flexible. It is more about connecting your breathing to the movement of your body while increasing mindfulness. The benefits of yoga include physical strength, better posture, body awareness, relaxation and the reduction of stress. Please wear comfortable clothing.
