Enjoy some feedback from our recent yoga event:


Doshka Truick:

What brought you to participate in the CITE Yoga event?
I just decided that this would be a season of more ‘yes’ than ‘no’s’ with an increased effort to find more work-life balance. 

What CITE Program did you attend?
I completed my studies at St. Francis more than 5 years ago. M.S. Ed leadership SBL/SDL

How was your CITE Yoga experience?
Great. Classy location and excellent and responsive instructor; was pleasantly surprised.

Describe a particular moment during the yoga session that you enjoyed.
Warrior pose. A challenge, but worth it.

Would you want to do the event again?
Yes, I would do that again and think that you should offer it again. (March is also a very stressful, month, may want to consider).

Would you recommend this event to a friend/ old classmate?
Yes, I would, although some have moved away, when and if in town could be a viable option.

What would you change if anything about this event?
Timeliness is always a factor, but it all worked out in the end. It was nice to open the studio and be finished by 9 am.

Angie Mompoint

My name is Angie Mompoint I graduated this past June with the CITE, SEIU 1199 Mental Health Counseling program. I didn’t even know what CITE was, I just fell upon the program through 1199. And since I’ve joined it was the best decision I’ve made in my life. I want to try yoga and network with other alumni, especially for the mental health program. I think yoga is great for self-care, and in the field that we are working you need a lot of self-care. I love the yoga experience and I would like to say that and I’ll participate in more stuff like yoga, and in any other event that promotes networking with each other. Nicole did an awesome job and I would love to come to her yoga class again.
