breathing room

The Breathing Room is your place on campus to reflect, renew and to learn techniques to reduce stress. We offer three yoga and meditation classes a week to the whole campus community, and provide an open, quiet space for reflection. Join us to learn and practice simple techniques that you can use anywhere. Most classes are small (4-8 people) and are open to all levels from complete beginners to advanced practitioners.
