COLLEGE YOGA DAY AT USC
October 26, 2019
Join us for the inaugural College Yoga Day At USC! Our all day, wanderlust-like festival will bring together the USC Yoga, mindfulness, and wellness communities to help you celebrate all that you love about life and about being a USC Trojan. We aim to introduce you to healthy lifestyle alternatives that are available to you as resources on campus through an amazing and eclectic collective of USC's elite Yoga and mindfulness-inspired professors and faculty members, along with a few oustanding teachers and leaders from the Yoga and mindfulness community in Southern California.
Sponsored by The USC Dornsife Physical Education Program, USC Student Affairs, The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life at USC, the new college brand Meditating Mascots, and us here at College Yoga Day, the event is FREE for all USC Trojan students, faculty members, staff, alumni, and friends & family members.

Other Info About College Yoga Day At USC...
College Yoga Day at USC is for all people of all backgrounds and all levels of practice. In terms of what to expect, there will be Yoga sessions that are slow and gentle, others that are flowy and athletic, and some from popular styles of Yoga. We will also have seated mindfulness meditation sessions and lectures. On the schedule page, Yoga sessions range from 60-90 minutes and meditation and mindfulness sessions and lectures range from 55-60 minutes. All sessions are on a first-come, first-serve basis and we will have 2-3 sessions beginning roughly every half hour to hour. What's more, there will be morning kids sessions, an Acro Yoga play area, a 12 PM Yoga-themed scavenger hunt (with team prizes!), an afternoon diversity panel, and nighttime hip-hop and reggae music, followed by a DJ. We hope you enjoy what we have planned for you!
College Yoga Day at USC is a B.Y.O.M. (Bring Your Own Mat) event and we will have a limited number of mats available for new practitioners. Registration is mandatory, whether you pre-register here on the College Yoga Day website to make it easier on the day of the event or you register when you arrive at the event. All USC students, faculty and staff members, and/or alumni must present proper identification (of some sort) for admission and a wrist band, which is necessary for entrance into all sessions. Anyone who is attending as a friend or family member of a USC Trojan will only be allowed entry to the event and a wrist band providing that he/she arrives with an aforementioned eligible attending USC participant(s). Additionally, signing a waiver and release upon arrival is required for entry for all attendees.
College Yoga Day at USC is non-competitive, friendly, family-like environment where kindness and supporting each other is valued and honored. It is also a drug-free and alcohol-free event and we request that you do not bring anything that would potentially disrupt the harmony of the event for others. Be mindful...and if in doubt, please leave it out.
