Drop-in classes held in Clemons Library are canceled indefinitely. However, CSC is has announced an online platform. View the schedule here.

This is a free drop-in class that is open to all — both the UVA and Charlottesville communities.

This class, set in a soothing candlelight environment, focuses on poses that promote relaxation and restoration through the use of props (blocks, blankets, etc.) that help relieve the effects of chronic stress. Such effects may include weakness and fatigue brought on by the fast-paced activities of our daily lives.
