Workplace Yoga Program (Wednesdays in E7)

 

About Workplace Yoga Program (WYP)

The Workplace Yoga Program (WYP) was first offered in Spring 2017 after a proposal was put forward to the University of Waterloo Staff Excellence Fund (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 basis.

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!

2020/2021 Details

*In any weeks when the Pitch Space is unavailable, yoga may be held in the Event Space (E7 2472).

Hatha Flow Yoga with Joshua

Joshua (Kunga) Webster has one main goal in teaching yoga: to provide students with the tools they need to bring more joy, health and happiness into their lives and the lives of those around them. Classes focus on increasing flexibility, reducing stress, toning and revitalizing the whole body through therapeutic and alignment focused poses that are accessible to most bodies. Those working with injuries or problem areas will be given alternative poses if needed. As we practise we will be encouraged to become more mindful of our breath and bodies to help bring us to a place of calm focus and mindful presence. You can read about the instructor's background, training and approach on his website, http://www.kungayoga.com/.
