Looking to relax and de-stress? Join a weekly meditation, yoga or Tai Chi session on campus. Sessions are available Monday through Friday at various campus locations.

All meditation and yoga sessions are facilitated from a secular perspective unless designated spiritual. In every instance, however, we acknowledge that meditation and yoga emerged from Buddhism, Hinduism and a variety of other spiritual traditions. All sessions are appropriate for beginners or students with a regular practice. 

We invite you to participate in our program evaluation. Your responses help us craft programming to meet the needs of our community now, and in the future. 

You can also join Mindful Moments at U of T's Facebook Group

About mindfulness

Mindfulness is a practice of being aware of yourself, your body and your surroundings in the present moment.

Rooted in Buddhism as a spiritual practice, it is also used in clinical psychology to help treat patients with chronic anxiety and stress. 

By learning to incorporate principles of mindfulness in your life through meditation and yoga, or in your diet through mindful eating, you can improve how you manage academic stress.

Register for a mindfulness workshop and you will learn practical skills to enhance your focus in class and deepen relaxation outside of class.
