Mark your calendars for a free all-levels class! Yoga with Christine: 1-1:45 pm on Jan. 30 at the Physical Activities Center.

Selfcare Strategy for Navigating the Holidays

Remember to enjoy the holidays but still focus on eating nourishing foods. It doesn’t have to be one or the other, they can coexist. Check in and bring awareness to whether or not you’re consuming fruits and vegetables regularly. Focus on adding things in vs. taking them away! 

New Wellness Portal for Faculty/ Staff: Coming in February 2024
