Recovery Yoga - Fall 2015

We are pleased to offer "Recovery Yoga" for anyone who is engaged in a healing process.   Participants will not be asked to disclose information about their recovery, but examples include: sexual assault, eating disorders, drug and alcohol use, mental health struggles, veterans of war. Yoga sessions will be taught by trained instructors from Transformation Yoga. Classes will be held on Thursday nights at 7pm in 160 Carpenter Sports Building, starting with a first class kick-off on the Central Green on Sept. 17, 2015. Sponsored by the Collegiate Recovery Community, Sexual Offense Support, and Student Wellness & Health Promotion.

Peer-to-Peer Consultation/Mentoring

Occasionally, trained Pow! members are offered the opportunity to be matched up one-on-one with another student at the UD who is interested in talking with and getting support from a peer who is more knowledgeable about the issues they are struggling with than their friends may be. This can be a short-term, one or two time meeting with a student to offer support and information. Or it can lead to a more in-depth mentoring relationship that lasts for some time or even throughout the college experience. Supervision is provided by the Pow! Coordinator to all who serve in this capacity.

This type of experience is fully optional to Pow! members and no member is asked to serve in this capacity unless they make it known that they are open to this opportunity. There is no guarantee that even if a Pow! member wanted this type of experience as part of their volunteer work with Student Wellness & Health Promotion that it could always be provided.

However, it is possible to work out a schedule in which Pow! members could do office hours at Student Wellness & Health Promotion to meet individually with students who are seeking information on certain health-related topics. While there would be no way to guarantee that the Pow! member's time spent in the office would be filled with student requests for information, such an arrangement could be explored.
