9:00am – 9:30am Pacific Time, led by Raquel Frisardi ’06
We’ll use gentle movement and breathing techniques to tap into the mind-body connection and ground you in to a meditative mental space. All poses will be beginner-level; no prior yoga experience necessary!

Mindfulness meditation and reflection exercises:
9:30am – 10:15am Pacific Time, led by Mariyam Mirza ’02 (no prior experience needed)
This week’s meditation will focus on processing mental and emotional difficulties. While these techniques can be very powerful and helpful, and are suitable for beginners, they will be more challenging than the meditations offered earlier in this series. Please use your judgement re: whether this is a safe time for you to be dipping your toe in such a practice.

For an overview of Mariyam’s perspective on teaching mindfulness, please see https://mindfulnessforengineers.dev



All you need is comfy clothes and a space to move in. A yoga mat or other soft floor covering (e.g., carpeting rather than hard wood) is recommended, but not required.

Mindfulness exercises

  • Please feel free to make yourself as physically comfortable as you like, sitting or lying down on a couch or yoga mat or bed, covering yourself with a blanket, etc. The meditations will be done in seated or lying down positions.
  • Feel free to turn off your camera and listen rather than watch for privacy, or if you are getting Zoom burnout. If, on the other hand, you are feeling isolated and need interaction, you are welcome to keep your camera on.
