Join the Husky Experience Student Advisory Council
Being involved inside the classroom is paramount to your academic success. Getting involved outside the classroom is critical to developing the additional skills and experiences to prepare for life after University, while contributing your time and intelligence to a worthy and important task. Involvement with the Husky Experience Student Advisory Council is one way to have influence in supporting innovative ideas by UW students. Click here to get more information and apply.
Adaptive Yoga at the IMA !
Adaptive yoga classes are smaller than traditional classes, allowing for a more hands-on approach. Yoga poses are adapted for people with physical limitations due to a range of conditions (paralysis, amputation, MS, stroke, etc.) Classes incorporate breathing exercises and relaxation/meditation. Participants may practice in a sturdy chair (provided), thick mat (provided), wheelchair, or their own yoga mat. View the schedule on the IMA course site.
