Mindful Yoga Classes on Tuesday and Thursday Mornings

Yoga is a remarkable practice for the body, mind and emotions.  Researchers have now found evidence as to how it is good for brain health as well, with study results showing improved speed, accuracy, memory and focus. Each Tuesday and Thursday at 8:00 AM, Danielle Roy (MS in Organizational Psychology and Kundalini Yoga Level 1 KYT-200 certified) teaches a 25 minute class for interested students of all ages.  A fee of $ 2 will be charged for each class.  Please contact Danielle Roy directly (contact information previously provided).

Students dissecting a sheep brain.

L F students and students studying high school Anatomy & Physiology have visited HCC twice this semester to perform some advanced Anatomy and Physiology experiments at the Dale Mabry campus. They determined blood types, grew microorganisms from their skin, and dissected sheep brains.

The visits were made possible by Dr. Peter Germroth (HCC faculty).

Each year this program donates more than 35,000 books to children from low-income families. We are delighted to have been able to contribute to the book drive.
