Army Boot Camp
Because a Soldier’s level of physical fitness has a direct impact on their combat readiness, a Soldier in the U.S. Army must be mentally and physically fit—and this creates the likelihood of having a more enjoyable, productive life! To achieve this level of health, the U.S. Army employs a Performance Triad approach that highlights sleep, activity, and nutrition. By increasing Soldiers’ awareness in these three areas, performance is optimized and resilience improves. Join us as a U.S. Army Recruiting NCO explores the physical fitness element of this triad with simple stretches and exercises to break up your day and get you moving. Weights and equipment are not necessary.
Mindful Desk Yoga
Experience mindful desk yoga and take it to your school. Enjoy 15 minutes of movement and 15 minutes of mediation. Bond with your colleagues over an experience that is active and fun.
Set your purpose for the day. Mindfulness meditation is a proven way to increase productivity and creativity. Through meditation, you have a chance to deeply relax and recover, reducing stress and burnout. You also have an opportunity to reflect and discover a deeper sense of self and purpose. This allows you to better engage with your work and relate to the important role you play in your organization.
You don’t need to be flexible to do yoga. You do yoga to get flexible. This yoga class is customized to work at your desk. Students will learn about healthy alignment, body mechanics, and how to deepen their felt sense to find greater health in the postures.
Yoga and mindfulness meditation contribute to health and happiness in school and in life. Experience it at NPC, then give your school community members an opportunity for a balanced mind, new energy, and better focus during the day. Invest in the mental and physical health of your school family and experience the benefits together.
