Flowing through a series of yoga poses and stretches facilitates stress reduction, improves strength and flexibility, while also nourishing the body and mind.

American Association of Medical Colleges Online Classes
(available for members of AAMC to attend)
Tai Chi invites you to move slow in a fast world. Often called medication in motion, Tai Chi is comprised of easy-to-learn forms that are both healing and mindful. Low-impact movements are practiced in a slow, flowing sequence to improve posture, balance, range of motion, confidence, cognitive abilities and mind-body integration.
Tuesdays, 12:00-12:45pm (CT)
Meditation provides the opportunity to connect with our breath to help usher our body and mind back to a more natural and calm state that can improve well-being, sleep and relationships. Every time we notice that our mind has slipped away from the now, we gently bring it back to our breathing, to our body, to the present moment. There is no good or bad meditation, there is no good or bad meditator, there is just our breath, again and again. No experience necessary.
