Mindfulness at Gustavus

As workloads pile up and schedules get busier, it’s hard to work in a little moment of relaxation in the day. Gustavus recognizes students’ need for relaxation and has several programs to promote mindfulness. Meditation sessions, yoga classes, and even a relaxation J-Term are all options for students to take a moment for some rest and relaxation. These opportunities are offered throughout the week. The Gustavus Meditation Club meets from 7:00-8:00pm Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the Bonnier Multi-Faith Center. Yoga sessions are held from 8:00-9:00pm on Tuesdays in Lund 224 as well as on Thursdays in the Bonnier Multi-Faith Center during Chapel Break. Students also have the chance to get a five minute massage from the Stress Buster team. Upcoming massage times are December 7th 6:00-7:00pm and 11th from 7:00-8:00pm. Other relaxation opportunities include a J-Term devoted to relaxation and the library’s relaxation room on the first floor in the back of the library. With all these options on campus, students are able to find a little time to take a break from their busy schedules.
