STRENGTH TRAINING 101 for EMPLOYEES:
BWC Studio 12:00 p.m. Tues. & Thurs.
(40 minutes) September 20th - Dec 22nd.
Learn how to lift weights correctly using light weights, bands, compound exercises, and your own body weight as resistance. This class is perfect for beginners, moderate movers, and even advanced exercisers. You will not only increase your strength, but also your balance and mobility while preparing yourself to do strength training at home on your own too. Sign up soon as there is limited space available!

Please don't feel intimidated! This class is taught by your friendly employee wellness coordinator, and you have most likely seen me trip over my own feet in the CSS hallways...so NOT intimidating!

STRESS RECESS for EMPLOYEES:
Mondays & Wednesdays
Tower Hall (Mitchell kitchenette)
1:00 Stretching (15-20 minutes)
1:30 Guided Meditation (10-15 minutes)
October 3rd - December 14th
No need to change out of your work clothes, just show up to stretch and do a little bit of core strengthening. The focus will be stretching your back, neck, shoulders and lower body from the discomfort caused by sitting at a computer all day.
Yoga mats are provided, but feel free to bring your own mat.
Sign up soon as there is limited space available! You may sign up for stretching, meditation, or both sessions.
