* Slow Flow Yoga – Ready to start the day energized? Join us for a 1 hour Slow Flow yoga class with Janet, a fellow conference attendee and certified yoga instructor.  Slow Flow yoga is made up of slow flow (three breaths per posture) including sun and/or moon salutations. Comfy clothes needed; bring your water bottle.  We will provide towels to use if you don’t have a yoga mat with you.

** Functional Fitness – Looking to infuse high intensity and functional fitness movements into the start of your conference day?  Join Jesse Pagel, CrossFit Level 1 coach, for a 1-hour morning workout!  Scaling and modifications are available to accommodate all fitness levels. Please wear workout clothing and workout shoes. Be sure to bring a water bottle and come ready to move!  Attendees will be asked to sign a waiver before participating.

***Meditation & Mindfulness – Join us  in the Sanctuary for some quiet time to decompress, reconnect mind and body, and practice some self-care as we turn our focus inward for a short while. Mindfulness has been defined as a practice of “bringing one’s attention to the internal and external experiences occurring in the present moment” (Baer, 2003). Join Clark Shah-Nelson for some guided mindful meditations. These sessions will be geared toward centering ourselves on breath, sensations and higher levels of consciousness so that we can experience OLC Innovate in a healthy and present way together.

Baer, R. A. (2003). Mindfulness training as a clinical intervention: A conceptual and empirical review. Clinical psychology: Science and practice, 10(2), 125-143.

Note:  Attendees participate in classes at their own risk. In the unlikely event of injury, please note that OLC and the WDW Swan & Dolphin Resort may not be held liable.
