SKY Wellness and Meditation Retreat for Faculty and Staff Online
After two successful retreats earlier this summer, we are delighted to announce the next online SKY Meditation Retreat offered especially for U of A faculty and staff Oct. 25-27. The retreat is part of the SKY Campus Happiness program! This program is being offered complimentary for U of A faculty/staff through the provost's office.
The retreat offers an in-depth experience of effortless meditation, breath work, yoga and more. SKY (Sudarshan Kriya Yoga) Meditation uses cyclical, rhythmic patterns of breath to easily bring the mind and body into a state of meditation. Research has shown that SKY may reduce depression, anxiety, PTSD, stress and addictive behaviors. It significantly increases feelings of well-being, optimism and mental focus and improves emotion regulation (research on SKY Meditation and Psychology Today article).
