Final LSAMP Wellness Wednesday of Semester
Join us as we take a breather and practice mindfulness
We would like to invite you to our final conversation on mindfulness this spring. In these sessions you will join members of the LSAMP community across the University System of Maryland as we learn the benefits of mindfulness and engage in exercises to help us appreciate the present moment.
Each session will be led by Dr. Karolyn Babalola. Dr. Babalola is an innovator, teacher, yogini, and learner. She is currently a Senior Lead Engineer at Booz Allen Hamilton leading AI-based Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology development. She completed her M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. She received her B.S. in Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, where she was a Meyerhoff Scholar.
Session 5 will be focused on Asanas – Intuitive Movements for Balance
In this session we will introduce how one can use asanas (yoga poses) to connect with pranayama, target chakra balancing and supplement a mindfulness practice. We will practice chakra-specific poses and walking meditation. We will conclude with a light yoga sequence followed by a yoga nidra meditation.
