Mindful Movement | Yin Yoga

Recreation

FREE REGISTRATION: https://bit.ly/mindfulnessandmeditationweekly

Yin yoga is a slow-paced, passive type of yoga that incorporates long holds and stretching designed for deep contemplation and mind-body awareness. Yin yoga promotes sensory awakening that melts away tension and stress, and is known to release repressed or stored emotions. A tried and true technique to experience fascia and connective tissue release, Yin yoga is also an excellent practice for beginners because it offers plenty of time to uncover the unique benefits of individual poses without worrying about tricky transitions.

Practicing self care through mindfulness and meditation can help you relax and focus on what is most important - your overall wellness. This class is the first in an ongoing, online wellness series hosted by the Utah State University Office of Health Equity and Community Engagement.

Live Q&A with USU's Spider Silk Lab

Panel Discussion/Presentation

Flexible, lightweight, strong, biocompatible, and water-resistant. A material with all of these properties can mean life-changing medical devices, protective equipment, and even building materials. But who came up with this super product? Spiders!

Can you imagine trying to farm spiders, which eat each other and yield relatively small quantities of silk? This is where spider silk expert, Justin Jones, comes in. Join us for a live Q&A with this USU researcher and professor to learn about how his lab is creating synthetic spider silk through the use of transgenic goats, bacteria, alfalfa, and even silkworms!

Dr. Justin A. Jones is an assistant professor in the Department of Biology at Utah State University. Dr. Jones received his Ph.D. degree in biology from Utah State University in 2015. He has worked with spider silk and its recombinant forms since 1998 while attending the University of Wyoming.

This event is part of Antelope Island Spider Fest 2021! Join us through Facebook live on the Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter Facebook page.

A Conversation on the Impact of COVID-19 on Utah Women and Work

Panel Discussion/Presentation

The Utah Women & Leadership Project invites you to join us for our first Fall Women’s Leadership Forum.

The COVID-19 pandemic of 2020–2021 has impacted all Utahns in profound ways. Yet, a host of national and global reports have argued that women’s employment and careers have been disproportionately impacted during this time. To better understand Utah women’s experiences specifically, UWLP researchers conducted an extensive, in-depth survey focusing on the impacts of COVID-19 on women and work. This comprehensive study included the collection of data on a wide variety of topic areas and included both quantitative and open-ended questions to capture participants’ perceptions and experiences. Over 3,500 Utah women responded to the survey. Study researchers will discuss the findings from this research, particularly focusing on burnout, hope, career advancement challenges, childcare, homeschooling, caregiver experiences, physical and mental health struggles, and more. Come, listen, and learn from this important conversation!
