CHHS Student Success Advisor Gives Talk on How Yoga Builds Resiliency at Seahawk Leadership Conference

On Oct. 21, Student Success Advisor, Gail Picillo gave a presentation on the topic of resiliency at the 2017 Seahawk Leadership Conference.

Her presentation focused on how yoga can serve as a tool to help build resiliency by learning how to breathe while practicing yoga poses. Gail posed the question: Can resiliency be built or is it innate.

The Seahawk Leadership Conference is an annual event sponsored by the Office of Student Leadership and Engagement. The conference provides UNCW students with educational opportunities and a means to connect with other students, faculty, staff and local community members.  

“I am excited that the Student Leadership committee selected my proposal and allowed me to present at this conference,” Gail said.
