Exercise and Relaxation Classes

*IMPORTANT NOTICE: As COVID-19 continues to impact the university, in-person MHealthy exercise and relaxation classes will continue to be on hold indefinitely. It is MHealthy’s intention to bring back in-person classes once we feel we can offer them in a safe and responsible manner. In the meantime, free live exercise and relaxation classes are available to university faculty and staff on U-M Slack. Thank you for your continued support!

We’re here for you! Join a live Zoom exercise and relaxation class in the well-being and benefits channel, on the umichWORKS Slack workspace. For access, please be sure to activate your free U-M Slack account, and join the umichWORKS workspace - it's just for Faculty and Staff.
