We have a limited number of $75 fitness training subsidies for UPEI staff and faculty (current employees) and current full-time UPEI students. Applications are on a first come, first serve basis. Only a limited number of subsidies, so apply quickly. The subsidies can be applied towards specialty fitness classes and/or cycle classes or small group training. Subsidy credits will be used towards the total cost of program.

The Karma Yoga class is held every Tuesday from 12:10–12:55 pm at UPEI Chaplaincy Centre.

This program provides a full body strength and flexibility workout which tones the body. Long stretches will melt away stress and create a feeling of deep relaxation. Please bring your own mat and/or towel and water.

Fee: Fee for each class is a donation to the UPEI food bank - $5 or food donation.

3. Tobacco Cessation Supports

UPEI has a number of tobacco cessation supports and programs available with a Quit Care Program in October 2017. Supports vary depending if you are a UPEI student or UPEI employee.
