In February 2021, the Lakeshore Principal’s Office launched the first-ever, Humber Mindful Monday Series! This new series was an 8-week program geared to help support the health and wellness of Humber staff, faculty, and students – in personal and community-based settings. Every Monday from February 1 - March 29, small groups have met to engage in mindfulness, meditation, or yoga sessions. This initiative was created to support our community's mental health and as part of a continued effort to create avenues for us all to get through this challenging time together.
An added bonus is that all the facilitators for the program are internal to Humber. Tina Lackner, an FSCS Professor has been leading the Meditation sessions, Debbie Kruclicki, an avid mindfulness practitioner for 15 years has been leading the Mindfulness sessions and Nathania Bron, Fitness Coordinator at Lakeshore campus has been steering the Yoga practices.
The program boasts of various sessions including Mindfulness Senses, Yoga Desk Relief Flow, Yoga Nidra Meditation, Mindfulness Body Scan, Yoga – Afternoon Energy Flow, Loving-Kindness Meditation, Mindful Eating, and Yoga – Feel Good Flow.
Thus far, attendees' feedback has been positive with many stating that it is a great initiative that promotes self-care in this time.
