This service provides respite during your routine break or time to regenerate during a break or or after your workday.

Our provider is Audrey Kolb, Bodyworker and Yoga Instructor with Sola Luna, Oberlin.

Monday, December 03, 2012What if Oberlin College went from the current 30ft parameter for tobacco smoking and instead went tobacco free? Radical notion? Not so much....A tobacco-free workplace is one of the most effective, far-reaching and lasting approaches to reducing employee tobacco use. Tobacco-free workplaces save lives and save money by: supporting employees who are trying to quit smoking moving current smokers to consider quitting or to smoke less preventing nonsmokers from starting to smoke attracting nonsmokers to your work force protecting the health of all workers reducing maintenance and insurance costs Let us know what you think: firstname.lastname@example.org
