LPCANC recognizes how much time and energy professional counselors devote to helping others. We also recognize that in order to help others, it is vital that we as counselors take time to care for ourselves. With this in mind, we are happy to announce that LPCANC’s first statewide networking event of 2014 will be a free self-care event.
You Are Invited to the LPCANC Statewide Yoga Day
LPCANC has arranged for licensed professional counselors, counselor educators, and counseling students to be able to participate in yoga classes around the state for free. These are basic yoga classes, suitable for all fitness levels.
When: Thursday, February 27, 2014 (Time varies by location)
Where: Various locations around the state (Please see the list below)
What you need to do: Click here to RSVP
You must RSVP in order to participate in LPCANC’s Yoga Day.
Most locations have a limited number of spots available and they will be given to the counselors who RSVP first. Once a location’s spots are filled, you will no longer be able to select that location in the RSVP form.
The week of the event all counselors who RSVP’d will be emailed a LPCANC Yoga Class Pass which they will need to present to the studio in order to participate for free.
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before the class start time in order to complete any paperwork or waivers required by the yoga studio.
