Are you trying to juggle too much? Is life stressing you out? Learn how practicing mindfulness - a state of enhanced attention to and awareness of current experience – can help you cope with stresses more effectively. This course is a highly interactive, collaborative learning experience that gives you the opportunity to explore accessible techniques ranging from mindful awareness in walking, sitting, eating, and resting, to yoga to reflective writing that may enhance your ability to have greater well-being, concentration and focus. We will draw upon new research in neuroscience, cognitive science, and developmental science, and adapt practices from contemplative traditions in secular ways that will serve you in student life and beyond.
Susan Saliba, Associate Professor
Exercise participation and activities of daily living often result in musculoskeletal injuries that can be managed or prevented by developing corrective strategies of movement. The Functional Movement Screen® is a system to evaluate human movement patterns to identify developmental or compensatory mechanisms that may increase risk of injury. Motor control and neuromuscular adaptations to injury will be presented as well as an overview of the anatomical position, movement planes and basic biomechanics. Additionally, mechanical injuries such as low back pain and core stability will be presented. The course will culminate with Functional Movement Screen® certification and students will obtain the skills necessary to perform this examination in healthy, physically active individuals for the purposes of improving motor function. Students interested in allied health and medicine, exercise science, kinesiology, strength and conditioning or personal training will benefit from this course and professional certification.
