Got stress? Research shows that regular participation in activities emphasizing the connection between the mind and body, such as yoga, tai chi, Pilates, meditation and mindfulness training, may prevent the negative effects of stress, including insomnia and headaches, and may improve certain health conditions such as high blood pressure, anxiety, and chronic pain. Such activities can also improve one's overall health and enhance resilience during times of stress.
The Mind-Body Team
at UHS applies a holistic approach, one that emphasizes the connection between mind and body, to treating and preventing physical illnesses and psychological disorders. Team members provide mind/body interventions such as meditation, relaxation, cognitive therapy and mindfulness to address psychological and physical concerns.
In addition to the programs and services provided by the UHS Mind-Body Team, numerous mind-body programs are offered on campus through Campus Recreation, the Office of Religious Life and other student groups. Other mindfulness training events occur throughout the year. Please return to this website for updates and course descriptions.
