Stretch With Wellness

  • Tuesdays, November 29-December 20, 9-9:30am, Zoom live
  • Register here

Do your muscles feel stiff or sore? Come as you are for this 4-week morning stretching series. Actively engage both your body and mind during these 20-30 minute sessions delivered by Zoom. Wellness staff will guide you through a gentle full body warm-up bringing mindfulness and awareness into where you may be holding onto tension within your muscles that day. You’ll continue to be guided through multiple stretches targeting different muscle groups throughout the body to invite relaxation into each area. Unwind through stretching with Wellness and carry that loosened up feeling with you throughout the rest of your week. You can attend one or more of these drop-in sessions from anywhere, and you need not attend previous sessions to join later in the series. No equipment is necessary, though many of the stretches will be from a chair. Open to the entire Cornell community; no membership needed. Questions? Contact session facilitators Cathryn Lucas or Kerry Howell.

Finding Flourish - A Wellness Experience

May is National Physical Activity and Sports Month and National Mental Health Awareness Month. Join a wellness experience to explore how you can begin to flourish this spring. The commitment is simple - take a break, move your body and get outside. We encourage you to do those three things every day in the month of May, even when work and life are nuts! For more information, please contact Ruth.

Come Stroll and Chat with Cornell Wellness: Arts Quad Edition

  • Thursdays, April 7, 14, 21, 28

Take a moment to take a break from your work space, connect with others and move your body. It will be a beautiful trifecta! While walking in small groups around an embellished Arts Quad loop, you will get a chance to talk and connect through prompted questions. This will be an opportunity to get some fresh air while we take two loops (where each loop is about one mile) and enjoy time in our spring environment. Our pace will be light to moderate and all levels and abilities are welcome. For more information, please contact Ruth.
