Enhance your personal and professional wellness by learning how to activate your full potential.

|Meditation to Cultivate Peace of Mind|
3:00 PM-4:00 PM ET
Stacy Hernandez, AS’98, MS’01
Settle in for a 40-minute meditation session to cultivate peace of mind in service of your mental health. When you dedicate time exploring within, you learn to listen to your inner voice rather than the influences outside of you. This internal reconnection can help you activate the power you have inside of yourself to stay grounded and bring enhanced mindfulness to every element of your life as you move through each day.

Make space both physically and mentally as we explore and connect with our bodies through the synthesis of yoga, movement, breath, and mindfulness exercises.
