WoWi - World of Work Inventory

Calendar Current session started Jan 3, 2022

The World of Work Inventory (WOWi) is a comprehensive career assessment instrument, which has been carefully constructed to help a person learn the most about him or herself in relation to the wide variety of occupations available. The WOWi provides a personalized profile for each person. As a result, you will receive a listing of occupations most suitable to your unique combination of personality, interests and skills. If you are uncertain about what career you should be in, if you are considering a career change, or thinking of going back to school, the WOWI Online can help you explore your options, so you can make the best and most informed career decisions. Finding the right line of work is not always easy. Because you’re a complex person, you need a career test that measures more than one aspect of who you are in order to help you find the most suitable and satisfying occupation. That’s why WOWI Online measures interests, aptitudes, and personality. You will receive customized reports with career recommendations as well as O*NET career growth outlooks, salary ranges, and levels of education and training needed to enter the industry.

YIN-Yoga- Nidra reduces pain. This unique class focuses on unwinding tension in the body & mind. Yin Yoga is about stretching and applying gentle pressure to certain tissues. Longer held postures support your body in deep rest that restores balance & stimulates deep healing. This class allows time for muscles to relax, joints to open & fascia to release long held tensions. In addition, we hold acupoints to bring balance & ease of flow to mind/body.

Yoga Nidra literally means “yogic sleep”. This ancient technique uses guided meditations to bring you into deep states of conscious relaxation. Yoga Nidra is an effective method for relieving stress & easing anxiety. It is a systematic practice of moving awareness from our external world to the inner world; allowing the body & mind to restore, rest & heal deeply. Yoga Nidra is done lying down in stillness while Mary guides you into bliss.

Wear comfortable clothing & bring your pillows, eye pillow, mat & blanket for a restorative experience you will delight in - all in the comfort of your home. You will be sent a ZOOM link to attend virtually.
