SoulFit Circuit Training
SoulFit incorporates yoga, a medium intensity weight resistance workout, yoga cool down,
and a final relaxation period to reward you for all your hard work.

Each class provides plenty of modifications so you work at your own ability.
Mind, body, and soul (true inner self) are all connected. All three areas desire and need fitness in their own way.

So how do we work from the inside out? All of us have what the Sanskrit in yogic tradition call samskaras.

You can think of them as scars or bad habits that we’ve formed over time.

These samskaras form pathways and the more time you’ve spent on these pathways

the deeper the ruts are the harder it is to get off and make a new path.

Program begins Monday, May 7thand runs every Monday through May, 21st
from 12 – 1 PM

in the Taylor Health and Wellness Conference Room.

We are also offering a Wednesday evening session

beginning Wednesday, May 2
nd and running every Wednesday through May 30th
5:30 – 6:30 p.m.

in the Taylor Health and Wellness Conference Room

The SoulFit workout was created by Amanda Layman who is certified through
Yoga Alliance and is also a Cross Fit Level One trainer.  She is also an MSU alum.

Dress lightly and bring a water bottle.

Bike to Work Week
May 14-18, 2012

Free, Fun, Easy and Makes a Difference
Help Us Make Springfield Bike Friendly!

It’s exciting to see such popular support for increasing alternative transportation choices in Springfield!
Ozark Greenways goal is to show people that leaving their car behind once in a while (or even on a regular basis)

isn’t as hard as one might think in a community like ours,

where a whole network of greenway trails and on-street bike routes is developing!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
May is Bike Month, and Bike to Work Week is the crowning event. Join us by taking this fun annual challenge to
leave your car behind at least one day that week to get to work or school,

whether by bike, bus, carpooling or a creative combination.

Ozark Greenway is excited about the Planning Department’s new development of a north/south “Link” bike/ped corridor,

eventually connecting Doling Park to Cox South! Check out
The Link map.
Come along and enjoy the ride.

By registering your commitment to participate in the
“Bike to Work Week Challenge”,
you show your support for making Springfield a more bicycle-friendly community.

Whether it’s by bike, bus, walking, telecommuting, carpooling or any combination,

everyone who participates at least one day that week will get a free Panera breakfast (bagel and coffee).

Small, medium and large sized businesses or schools who have the most people participate will win a traveling trophy.

Mileage is not important to the Challenge because we commend those living close to work or school.

All participants will receive Panera Bread breakfast vouchers and prizes will be given randomly, so everyone wins something!

Your participation will make a difference – we promise!

Mammogram Bus on Campus
What is the St. John’s Wellness On Tour Bus?
The St. John’s Wellness On Tour Bus brings you the area’s only state-of-the-art

mammography equipment on wheels.

Since 2001, our high-tech health bus, staffed with dedicated St. John’s health professionals,

has delivered on-site services throughout southwest Missouri.

Why get a mammogram?
• One in nine women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime
• Breast cancer accounts for nearly one in three cancers diagnosed in women

• Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death in U.S. women

• Early detection and treatment is key to higher breast cancer survival rates

• Mammography is an excellent screening tool

About Mammograms
A mammogram is a low dose X-ray of breast tissue. A mammogram screening can detect

a lump as early as seven years before it can be felt.

The Wellness On Tour Bus is an extension of St. John’s Breast Center.

Your films will be read by St. John’s dedicated mammography radiologists.

Films are also read by the Image Checker System.

This system is the first FDA-approved computer aided detection system.

Early detection is key to higher survival rates and lower treatment costs.

The Mammogram Bus will be located in front of Freudenberger House

2012 Dates open for mammograms on MSU’s campus

Broiled Halibut with Shaved Spring Vegetable Salad – Recipe
 
  • Paper-thin slivers of radish and fennel tumble among ribbons of carrot in this colorful celebration of spring.
    Parsley, cilantro, and lemon add brightness, while nutmeg adds a twist all its own. With its thick texture, halibut can dry out all too easily.

    Your best bet is to slow-roast, poach, or broil. The broiler is foolproof, as the ambient heat of the oven will slowly cook the fillet.

    Yield Serves 4
Ingredients
·         4 (5-ounce) skinless halibut fillets
·         Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
·         1 bunch baby rainbow carrots (about 6 ounces) or 3 medium carrots, trimmed and thinly peeled into ribbons
·         1 bunch radishes (about 5), thinly sliced
·         1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
·         1 small bulb fennel, thinly sliced
·         1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
·         1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
·         2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
·         2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
·         1 whole seed nutmeg
Directions
1.    Heat broiler, and on a lightly oiled baking sheet, season fillets with salt. Place tray directly under broiler, close oven door, and turn off broiler. Leave fish in oven until flaky, 15 to 20 minutes, depending on thickness.
2.    Meanwhile, combine vegetables and herbs in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Whisk lemon juice with oil and drizzle over salad, tossing to combine.
3.    Serve with halibut. Garnish salad with grated nutmeg and a drizzle of oil.
