SVCC to Offer Meditation Breathing Therapy

October 2010

Face yourself and to look within as Sauk Valley Community College will offer the class Meditation and Breathing Therapy from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays October 5 through November 9, at Traditional Wellness Center, 221 W. First St. in Dixon.

One mediates to discipline the mind, cultivate awareness, and see things as they are. In this class, participants will learn how to become conscious of unhealthy breathing patterns and how to use the full range of movement in the lungs, diaphragm, belly, and back—in fact, in the entire body—to inhale and exhale fully and deeply.
Natural breathing and meditation can reduce stress, improve health, and increase energy.

Cost for this class is $35. To register, stop by Sauk's Office of Admissions, Room 1J1, between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays or between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays. For more information about this class, call Sauk’s Office of Personal and Professional Development at 815-288-5511, ext. 212.
