MindfulNYU hosts a wide offering of FREE yoga and meditation classes throughout the week during the academic year. All classes are open to students, faculty, and staff with a current and valid NYU ID. Unfortunately our classes are not open to alumni. 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.

Please note that the majority of MindfulNYU classes will primarily happen in-person with a Zoom link for those who wish to join a class virtually.

Yoga and Meditation Classes Begin September 6th, 2022

Please note some classes start the week of September 12th, 2022. 

Meditation Schedule

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.

Yoga Schedule

MindfulNYU offers FREE yoga classes Monday through Saturday, September through December and late January through May. These classes are taught by certified, dynamic, and highly experienced teachers from all over the city. Classes focus not just on physical fitness and health but also on connecting to our center and finding peace through meditation-in-movement.

Meditation Room

The meditation room will be closed for the next three weeks starting 9/21-10/12. If you would like a space to meditate, Conference Room 484 and the GSL Lounge are available for practice.

MindfulNYU also offers a meditation room, open during our office hours, for individual practice (quiet, seated, upright meditation). Come by GCASL 486 for quiet, peace, and calm right here on campus.

The meditation room is available for silent, individual 20 minute meditation. Please stop by the front desk to sign up for a 20 min slot. Masks must be worn at all times. There is no eating or drinking in the space.
