Upcoming Events

Move Breathe Create

The Stress Free Zone and the Center for Creativity are partnering up to help you relieve that end-of-semester stress by combining movement and making. Hallie Stotsky, Coordinator of the Stress Free Zone, will lead you through 30 minutes of yoga, followed by mindful breathing exercises joined with hands-on making. No yoga or art experience required! Comfortable clothes to move and maybe get a little messy in is all you’ll need. Registration is required.
