MindfulNYU hosts a wide offering of FREE yoga and meditation classes throughout the week during the academic year. All classes require an NYU ID and are open only to students. Please see below for more information. These are drop in classes and no prior registration is required. Our class schedule follows the official University Academic Calendar.

Yoga and meditation sessions (unless otherwise listed) are located in the Global Center for Academic and Spiritual Life at 238 Thompson Street on the 4th floor.

The type of meditation we practice involves simple — but not always easy! — breath and awareness exercises that bring our attention to the present moment. We learn to relax and rejuvenate our bodies, look inward with more insight and wisdom, and cultivate greater compassion for ourselves and others.

Our meditation practice is enriched with teachings from a variety of spiritual traditions, as well as lessons from our own personal lives. We offer Monday through Thursday classes for both beginner and advanced practitioners, as well as affinity sessions for students of color and LGBTQi students. Comfortable clothing is suggested. There is nothing quite like meditating with a community!
