Wellness Workshops

Our workshops are designed to assist you to learn about and engage multiple dimensions of wellness: including physical, intellectual, spiritual, environmental, occupational, social, and emotional.

Wellness Workshops

During the Fall, Winter, and Spring academic quarters, we offer Wellness Workshops that are FREE for DePaul students, staff, faculty (members and non-members)and community members. Workshops include topics related to all seven dimensions of wellness, including nutrition, workout ideas and goal-setting, running efficiency clinics, mindfulness, and more. In addition, check out our DIY Workshops and our training programs in Self-Defense and CPR/AED. Participants are encouraged to register in advance due to limited space.
