It was useful as a general way to relax and feel better
Very relaxing. Not a fan of meditation but the stretching and relaxation was great!
It was so fun and extremely helpful in understanding how one can calm themselves before any kind of anxious experience.
I'm not super flexible, so yoga can be challenging for me, but I really like the meditation part, and I think it's nice to experience some of the things we talk about it class, because we're more likely to understand concepts when we practice them, opposed to just talking about them.
I have my own yoga practice that I usually do 5-7 times a week. I never thought of yoga as relieving communication stress though, but I definitely see where you're coming from. I'll probably try the whole exercising before giving a speech idea because that will help get rid of some nerves. Loved doing yoga in class! :)
I defiantly thought it was going to be horrible before class, but it was actually pretty fun.
I have always been a fan of yoga and I really enjoyed trying it in the classroom setting. It surprised me how everyone in the class participated.
It was a great break in the day and also gave me some really great tips on how to relax and get rid of anxiety.

It was fun and felt relaxing, but probably not something I would spend my spare time doing.
I did feel a lot more relaxed during yoga. For a few minutes a lot of my stress went away which put my mind at ease; however, it did not solve all my problems, but it was nice not to feel all the pressure for a little bit.
I thought it was very useful. I felt very relaxed and felt like I could take more in the rest of the day( that's saying a lot because I am a very anxious person)! It was not boring, however, it was a little weird. After getting past that though, it was really nice to spend a little time in class relaxing!
I thought it was very useful. I really enjoyed it, and I would love to do it again during class !
Ok I wasn't a huge believer/supporter of yoga and meditation but after the COM class I felt so relaxed and comfortable. I had the Caterpillar job fair right after and I talked with recruiters for 2 hours straight! No exaggeration here I got there at 2 and almost missed the last shuttle back to Bradley at 4 pm. I was so calm and the mild anxiety I usually have when talking in high stakes conversation was completely gone! I really, really felt a difference in my confidence and ease in talking to the recruiters. I will definitely be doing more yoga and meditation before high stakes presentations or meetings.
Thank you Laura!
I thought that dong the yoga and meditation really helped make every stress and issue feel like they were less overwhelming. I felt a sense of calm that is difficult to achieve without something like meditation. I'm glad to have participated in the activity.
It was peaceful, but I wish it didn't have to be so rushed.
I thought it was useful. I definitely found it helpful as well. I felt more relaxed afterword. I should continue to do yoga before class.
I like doing yoga anyway, and I am already aware of the countless benefits of physical activity. Nonetheless, this was a pleasant experience. It matches the (high) quality of yoga classes that I have taken before, and it provided a nice break within another busy day.
I thought it was really fun! I enjoyed it.
I found the yoga and guided mediation to be helpful in getting my mind off of my stress.
It was interesting and helpful. It showed me a different way I could relax my mind and body.
I enjoyed it and found it relaxing. It could definitely help relieve anxiety before a speech.
It was super fun and relaxing.
I like the meditation part because you can go through every muscle in your body and become completely relaxed
It was relieving, relaxing, and super fun
I found the yoga and meditation very useful. It definitely worked to alleviate the stress I had of the day. I really want to do yoga more now.
The yoga and meditation we tried that day was a big stress reliever for the rest of my day. I felt more relaxed right after class and I definitely will try it again during my free time when I am feeling stressed again.
I enjoyed it. I did feel a lot more relaxed and rested.
It was pretty cool, not exactly a yoga person, but it did its job. I have done meditation before, but in a more religious/christian way. Its cool to give people an outlet to relieve stress, but its not for me. Thanks for the experience though.
It was very relaxing. I would really like to try it again not only to relieve stress but to help with muscle soreness for Track.
It was a lot of fun! I had already had a stressful day and yoga was exactly what I needed to help me relax a bit. It helped me calm down before my long drive home so I could arrive safely.
It was useful with the big game that night!!! Helped make me feel revived
It was very relaxing, and it could be a very useful tactic to relaxing before a speech.
I thought all these exercises were very relaxing and made me feel energized after. I'm not sure if it would help me feel calm before public speaking, though I would definitely try it out to see how it works for me.
I felt that it was very fun and relaxing. I also felt that it helped with memory retention and focus. I'd love to have it incorporated into class again!
I thought it was pretty interesting. Not sure if I can see myself doing it anytime soon, but I'm not completely averse to it.
I found it very relaxing, and usually I suffer from a little back pain but afterwards my back, and mind felt great.
I've never been into yoga/meditation before but after doing it in class I felt significantly less stressed and super comforted. Glad we did it!
It was very enjoyable and a good experience. It can definitely be useful for certain kinds of anxiety, such as more general anxiety. For me personally, it would not help much with my communication apprehension because by the time I would actually be giving my speech or talking with people, the anxiety would have had time to return just as strong.
I found this very useful as well as fun.
Before I came into class that day I had a huge headache and congested nose and when I left both of those things were relieved. I did yoga at high school for a class and I became very interested in it, but as soon as the class ended I lost interest. Yoga makes me feel good inside and out.
Very helpful! I believe it helped me pass my calc test I had next!
I thought it was interesting, because I get nervous speaking in crowds.
It was interesting, and slightly uncomfortable (physically). I am very inflexible. and so attempting to contort myself to the strange poses was very humorous and awkward.
very interesting/fun. im not a yoga-y person but i could definitely see how it helps calm people
The meditation didn't do much for me, but the yoga felt relaxing.
It was a very interesting experience, since I've never done yoga before. Also, it was a nice break during the day; I felt more relaxed afterwards!
It seemed very useful and fun but a bit weird. It was a very good stretch.
It was amazing, I already do mediation but I want to try yoga now
I was literally like this is not gonna work for me because I felt miserable with mono. Then like I relaxed and I ended up falling asleep. Maybe not the intended outcome but it made me relax and realized that in college not everything is due the next day so I don't need to panic. I applaud.
It was kind of weird, but it was nice to relax.
