PCU treats students' health and wellbeing as a high priority and are delighted to offer a programme of activities that enrich the body, mind and soul, along with individual support and advice.
Students are welcome to join weekly yoga sessions with a qualified instructor. We are open to all levels of ability, including beginners. You don't require anything except a yoga mat, comfortable clothes and a bit of curiosity. If interested, please join the Facebook group Czech Out Yoga for updates and announcements.
In the West, meditation has moved from the fringe into a mainstream activity with Universities around the world recommending its practice. We offer weekly sessions with a qualified meditation instructor to help reduce stress, improve concentration and for student’s to experience an overall sense of wellbeing.
