The new morning class is a pilot program and exclusive to faculty and employees. The session is an active, flowing, physical practice designed to energize you for the day ahead. Both seated and standing poses will be explored along with deep breathing and an introduction to meditation. Modifications will be offered for all ages and skill levels. Current NYU ID required. Space and mats are first-come, first-served.
The session follows a creative, flowing, dance-like sequence with keen awareness of breath, alignment, and mindfulness movement. Each class focuses on a new theme inspired by poetry, spiritual teachers, and meditation techniques used to focus the mind and become more fully present mentally, physically, and spiritually. Diverse music and fun sequencing make this flowing class fun and accessible to students of all levels. Current NYU ID required. Space and mats are first-come, first-served.
Personalized Nutritional Counseling Sessions
Update: The fall 2017 session has filled. Counseling will next be offered in spring 2018.
Work one-on-one with NYU Steinhardt graduate students pursuing a career in the field of nutrition and food studies over three personalized counseling sessions to discuss your nutrition-related issues. Participants will work with a faculty-supervised student to identify realistic goals and develop strategies to achieve them. To participate, you must have a specific nutritional concern on which to focus; the focus may be broad or specific, such as losing weight, reducing sodium intake, or adding balance to your vegetarian diet.
