Angela Landers

Georgia Southern University Counseling Center mental health counselor Angela Landers has been invited to speak at the 2019 Caribbean Well-Being Conference, which will be held in August in St. Maarten.

Landers was asked to present the applications of a therapeutic program, Mindful Yoga, which she developed for Georgia Southern’s Counseling Center. Her presentation is titled, “Building Resiliency with Mindfulness.”

Landers developed Mindful Yoga as a means to reach a broad number of students who are looking to create proactive, healthy lifestyles, as well as students looking for a non-traditional, non-talk therapy model. Mindful Yoga incorporates empirically supported breathing exercises, yoga postures and psychoeducation for the treatment of depression, anxiety, body image concerns and trauma.
