Students turn to yoga and meditation for stress relief

Looking for stress relief or extra energy? How about trying The YesPlus Meditation & Yoga Club? The Club began in the Spring 2017 for students on the Cleveland State campus.

The program was created by Supriya Jindal, 30, from India, who came to Cleveland for the doctoral program in Gene Regulation in Health and Disease (GRHD).

Jindal, who has been involved in yoga and meditation for eight years, brings that experience with her to the students on campus and anyone interested in joining the program.

The group meets at 6 p.m. every Wednesday, in the Main Classroom.

There are plenty of benefits for doing yoga and meditation. First, health is the most important. Being students, we do not have much time, so getting some sort of physical activity in is pertinent according to the American Heart Association.

Next, meditation helps with breathing techniques to help relieve stress, take charge of our emotions and can give extra energy to make through those long days on campus.

Last, it is vital to make time for physical health.

“Come and check us out,” Jindal said. “There is no drawback, you will only gain something out of it.”

In addition, the group has the YesPlus Retreat which is scheduled for Sept. 28 through Oct.1, and will be held on campus.

The time for the retreat will be from 6 p.m. to 9:45 p.m on Sept. 28 and 29, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.
