Meditation Corner

The Meditation Corner is one of UMass's indoor contemplative spaces to be used by our members to find stillness in their busy days, to sit, breathe and meditate.

Meditation Corner

We created the Meditation Corner to be a safe space to explore the mental and physical benefits of meditation. Information about the benefits and methods can be found in the Wellness Center on the bulletin board and in pamphlets.

We encourage you to stop by to clear your head, relieve stress, and learn about the wonderful benefits of meditation. The Meditation Corner is available whenever the Recreation Center is open.

If you have questions or would like more information about the Wellness Center, please contact Assistant Director Jill Isabelle at jisabelle@umass.edu or speak with one of our nutrition advsiors during office hours.
