Cameron Keeps RVA Mindful
A lot of folks know about the benefits of yoga and mindfulness practice in reducing stress and promoting wellness.  Some may not know that Cameron found relief from her stress and anxiety through these practices. She proudly called herself a “yogi.” Now she is calling us to learn more.

Facebook LIVE Event - Wednesday, November 15, at 6 pm
Join the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR) and CKG Foundation for a Facebook Live interactive event about the benefits of mindful practices.  Hosted onsite, CKG and CHoR will gather to discuss and take questions about mindfulness: what it is, how and why it works.  Spread the word and tune in.

Mindful Mondays - Once a month from 7 – 8 pm
Middle school and high school students can experience a led mindful practice as a way to increase focus, reduce stress, and just “chill.”  Alex Peavey, Collegiate’s Mindfulness Director who trained Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson, leads the high school group.
