The Workplace Yoga Program (WYP) was first offered in Spring
2017 after a proposal was put forward to the University of
Waterloo Staff Excellence
(https://uwaterloo.ca/staff-association/staff-excellence-fund). In 2020, WYP received
additional funding (June 2020 - May 2021).
WYP offers no-cost yoga classes to UW staff in different
campus locations (currently including youtube streaming) on a week-to-week, first-come-first-served
Participation in on-campus WYP classes is free to all UW staff members (the YouTube streaming is open to all members of the UW Community).
You don't have to be a UWSA member to participate, and
there's no long-term commitment. Choose a link below for
more details about the instructor and signup process!
Note: classes are currently being livestreamed on our YouTube channel. Please subscribe or add a bookmark to our channel.
Start: June 1, 2020
End: May, 2021
Until we are back on campus, the information below does not apply. We shall see what the future holds! Perhaps we will have a livestream on the large video monitor in the pitch area during the transition back to campus.
Classes will be held Wednesdays from 12:05 to 12:55 in the Engineering 7 Pitch Space (E7 2334*).
*In any weeks when the Pitch Space is unavailable, yoga may
be held in the Event Space (E7 2472).
