Monday, August 23rd, 12:00-1:00 PM

Mindful Monday: In-Person Yoga for RCTC Students, staff, and faculty. The physical exercises may increase flexibility, coordination, and strength, while the breathing practices may calm and focus the mind to develop greater awareness and diminish anxiety, and thus result in a higher quality of life. Other beneficial effects might involve a reduction of distress, blood pressure, and improvements in resilience, mood, and metabolic regulation.
