What We Do
The 8 Areas of Wellness: Why we do what we do
The Wellness Center aims to help students live a healthy balanced life while on campus and beyond. Our programming comes from the eight areas that comprise a state of wellness. These areas are: Environmental, Emotional, Social, Occupational, Intellectual, Financial, Physical and Spiritual. The Wellness Center supports workshops and programming to help raise students awareness about the eight areas of Wellness and the relationship between these areas and a state of health and well being.
The Wellness Center also is a confidential resource on campus for students to seek help, get advice or receive counseling about substance use or abuse. Students who seek help around substances, or are concerned about a friends habits, can make an appointment at the Wellness Center.
The Wellness Center also offers free Yoga classes ‘for a natural high’ to all Purchase students. Taught by licensed Yoga Practitioners, the classes help our students de-stress, ground themselves, be mindful and comfortable in their body.
Wellness will be offering virtual yoga classes in the Fall 2020 semester. For schedule updates please visit our online Yoga Schedule.
