Computer Relief Desk Session

A free 30-minute session led by Stephanie Ross-Russell, an Oxford-based movement instructor. You can be dressed in your normal clothing and just need to set yourself up at your desk with your computer in front of you. Ideally please be seated on a simple stable chair without arms. We will be both sitting and standing in this practice. Stephanie will be guiding us through movements and stretches that help to alleviate tension that can occur from too much time at your desk.

A Zoom link will be circulated in the RAI’s weekly mailing. If you are not on our mailing list but would like to join these sessions, please email: comms@rai.ox.ac.uk.

RAI Wellbeing

Yoga Nidra Session

A free 30-minute session led by Stephanie Ross-Russell, an Oxford-based movement instructor. This is not yoga as you know it, but a deep guided relaxation practice. To gain the most benefit from this, find a comfortable place to lie down where you will be able to listen to Stephanie's voice clearly from your device. You will not need to see the screen. Make sure it is quiet where you are and that you will not be disturbed during the practice. Ideally have a pillow for your head and enough layers on or a blanket to keep you warm.

A Zoom link will be circulated in the RAI’s weekly mailing. If you are not on our mailing list but would like to join these sessions, please email: comms@rai.ox.ac.uk.
