What are students saying about the ACT courses:
Students in ACT Yoga and Meditation courses:
"Through the practice of meditation, I have been able to better myself on days where I am struggling through schoolwork, energy, or any other issues I may be encountering. I feel like I have become a healthier person throughout the semester completing meditation practices weekly."
