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.
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. Participants are encouraged to register in advance due to limited space. Register at The Ray Membership Services desk, online or through The Ray at DePaul app.
Winter Quarter 2018 Workshops will be posted soon. Until then, to give you an idea of what we have to offer, here are some past workshop descriptions.

Finding Your Balance
Many people think that "being well" means being physically fit and eating right. That's certainly part of it, but there's a lot more to wellness than that. Join us to find out just how much you know about wellness, explore all of its dimensions, and gain insights on how to achieve balance in your life so that you feel the best that you've ever felt! Also, you'll get a chance to win a Bean smoothie for some post-workshop re-fueling!
Tune out the noise and tune into your world. Rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul with this relaxing midweek break from the action. A facilitator from the Office of Religious Diversity will lead you in a guided relaxation and meditation exercise. Join us! You'll be glad you did! This program is only held during the academic quarter while academic classes are in session. See the Group Fitness schedule for days and times.
Fitness on the Go!
Too busy to be fit? No time for the gym? That's okay - you can incorporate physical activity into your day and stimulate your brain at the same time! A certified personal trainer will help you explore physical activity and exercises that you can do between classes, at your desk, or in your room. Wear comfortable clothing to this workshop so you can try out some of her ideas right away!
