Stretching is essential to your daily life, even if you are not keen on exercising. Scientific research has proven that regular stretching helps to reduce muscle stiffness, release pain, improve flexibility and relieve daily stress.
Counseling and Wellness Center is going to collaborate with the Hong Kong Stretching Exercise Association to invite the first blind stretching instructor in Hong Kong to lead a series of stretching classes on campus in Nov 2019. The classes aim at promoting disability inclusion, enhancing campus community’s wellbeing and alleviating stress.
HLTH1010 Course students will attain 4.5 course hours in “Wellness and Personal Enrichment Events” of the “Activities” module upon completion of events. Seats are limited and enrollment is on a first-come-first-served basis. For those who are interested, please bring along HK$100 deposit with your Student/Staff ID card and register in person at the Counseling & Wellness Center during office hours. (Participants will receive a full refund of the deposit upon completion of the 3 scheduled sessions.)
Update on 16 October 2019: Participants of the inclusive stretching class are supposed to bring what they learn to the Stargaze Camp for All & the Blind 2019. However, the camp is canceled by the organization committee and it will be postponed to Year 2020. SEN Support intends to co-organize this event for the campus community to involve in this meaningful and inclusive event in the future. Further information will be announced in due course.
