1. 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.

2. Karma Yoga - dates changing

Currently the Karma Yoga class will continue to be held on Wednesdays from 12:10 pm - 12:55 pm outside in Quad area (rainy weather held at Chaplaincy Centre) for August 23 and 30. Beginning September 5, the Yoga class will be held every Tuesday from 12:10 pm – 12:55 pm at the Quad area during nice weather and inside at UPEI Chaplaincy Centre when weather gets colder.

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. UPEI Employee Fitness Subsidy

This year we have 55 subsidies for current UPEI faculty and staff only to use towards UPEI Athletics and Recreation small group training or fitness classes.
