Campus Well-Being


Physical movement has numerous benefits for both students and staff, including relaxation, motivation, and a sense of accomplishment. By participating in one of Campus Well-Being’s fitness and sports classes, you can get your heart pumping and energy flowing. Alternatively, if you prefer a more calming approach, you can try our yoga, T’ai chi, and other gentle options. Whatever your preference, we offer a range of activities to help you improve your well-being through physical movement.

T’ai Chi

T’ai Chi involves the use of daily gentle exercise to improve health with a focus on breathwork. This longevity practice is easy to access and yet profound enough for a lifelong engagement. The universal martial arts movements serve as a focus for the development of mind, body, and spirit (Chi).
