You do NOT have to be a current client of the Counseling Center to attend workshops, and no appointment is required. Just drop-in!
Wednesdays (CC) 5:00pm-6:00pm (Dr. Katie Bigalke)
If you are dealing with stress, anxiety, or depression and would benefit from learning or reviewing emotional wisdom such as relaxation, mindfulness, cognitive tools to battle anxiety or depression, emotion regulation, and/or social anxiety, this could be the seminar for you!
Seminars are designed with the “Learn by Doing” principle. Learn and practice exercises together so that you gain confidence using these skills in your daily life to manage stress, anxiety, and depression. Participate at your level of comfort. Topics will cover the same information but are offered on two different days to try and accommodate some scheduling conflicts.
Learn yoga postures to cope with anxiety, depression, and trauma as we explore the mind-body connection together. Breathing and meditation techniques will also be a focus of this interactive group. No previous yoga experience needed. You need only an openness to self-awareness and new experiences. Join us to learn how stabilizing your body and breath can lead to stabilizing your emotional self.
