Workshop teaches relaxation tips to help improve mood

By Kristen Koehler

Students are invited to attend the Therapeutic Stretch, Release and Relaxation Skill Builder! workshop where NMU student Rachael Williams will assist in demonstrating various stretches as well as massage techniques.

The workshop will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 15 in Pioneer Rooms A and B of the University Center.

Williams has learned through experience that doing a few simple exercises a day can improve mood, increase energy and alleviate stress.

Learning how to relax by controlling the body is especially important for students, Williams said.

“During the workshop we plan to start out high energy and as time progresses we will slow things down by doing more calming and relaxing stretches,” Williams said. “It’s important we show students how to relax different parts of their body including the face and neck.”

While many of the stretching techniques are done individually sitting or lying down, students are encouraged to bring a friend to the workshop for the partner stretch demonstrations.
