Mindfulness at the USC

As a student you are expected to divide your attention between your studies, your friends, your student association, earning enough money to get by, and making choices for your future. With so much going on in your head you can lose sight of yourself and succumb to stress.

During this 6 week course you’ll be taught mindfulness and yoga techniques which can serve as tools to help you maintain balance in your life. You will also learn to recognise when your levels of stress are rising.

Of course stress and tension are a part of everyday life, but they shouldn’t control your life. By using these techniques you’ll learn to recognise signs of stress and to change your behaviour in a positive way, thus ensuring that stress doesn’t take over your life.
