Workshop helps improve physical health

A SkillBuilder! workshop that improves your physical health and vitality is being offered this semester.

Falun Dafa, a traditional self-cultivation practice to improve the mind and body, is continuing to become more famous from its health benefits that have helped millions across the globe. The workshop will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Cadillac Room of the University Center on Wednesday, Feb. 29.

Hsinling Hsieh, associate professor for the economics department, will introduce new exercises to participants that originate all the way back to ancient China.

“It’s a great opportunity to calm down and relax your body and take a break from our fast-paced lives,” Hsieh said. “The exercises are meant to relieve stress and increase energy.”
