Learn about the crucial role that the body plays in managing stress, the development of self, and improving the quality of one’s life. Through a lens of perceived disability, this conversation and a shared yoga practice explores the notion of resilience and life-affirming, body-to-mind sensations like grounding, expansion, and balance.

Matthew Sanford, founder of the nonprofit Mind Body Solutions, has been exploring the intersection between body and mind since becoming paralyzed over 40 years ago. Sanford will visit UB for a week of insightful discussions, sharing his expertise and adaptive yoga practices with students, faculty, staff and the UB community. All are welcome to join, but registration is limited for certain events.
