Abstract

In the fall 2020, the presenter created 6 short yoga videos (less than 10 minutes) to share throughout the semester so that students would be reminding about the importance of slowing down and taking breaks while studying. With the help of the Libraries Promotion and Marketing department, these videos on social media on Wednesdays. We then expanded this in the spring 2021 semester to online yin and restorative yoga classes, offered on Wednesday evenings, online through Zoom. Session will discuss some of the scientific benefits of yoga, how yoga is being used at academic libraries and in higher education. We will also start this session with a brief yogic breathing exercise.
