Wellness is not a luxury; it’s a priority, without which, none of the other things in life run as smoothly as they should.

Explore our thoughtfully curated space for wellness right here on campus — where you can embark on a journey of self-discovery through the transformative practices of yoga and meditation. In this nurturing environment, you'll not only foster your physical and emotional well-being but also cultivate your creativity. You'll build resilience, refine mindfulness techniques, and deepen your awareness of the body.

Located at GL-23, 147 rue de Grenelle — our wellness space provides a calm retreat — offering comfort from the demands of daily life. Open to the entire AUP community — faculty, students, and staff — we host a diverse array of weekly classes and pop-up workshops throughout the academic term.

But there's more to our offerings. We also organize workshops tailored to stimulate creative exploration using activities aimed at honing the boundless potential of your mind, body, and spirit. These activities are designed to awaken your artistic wisdom and introduce new avenues for expression.

Our doors are always open to those seeking relaxation, inspiration, or simply a moment of respite. Join us as we journey together towards holistic well-being and creative fulfillment.

Meanwhile, try these quick stress-relief exercises:

Muscle Relaxation:

  • Tune into your body and notice any areas of tension.
  • Sequentially tense and release the muscles in your legs, arms, torso, and face.
  • Contract each muscle group for 3 to 5 seconds, then relax for 15 to 20 seconds.


Breathing Exercise:

  • Set aside 5 minutes, three times a day, for this exercise.
  • Inhale deeply for 5 seconds, then exhale for 5 seconds.
  • Use a timer or count silently in your head to maintain the rhythm.
  • (Example: Inhale – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Exhale – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)


And remember the importance of self-care at work. Here are a few tips to help you prioritize your well-being:

  • Take short breaks throughout the day to stretch and relax your mind.
  • Stay hydrated and nourished with healthy snacks and meals.
  • Set boundaries and prioritize tasks to manage your workload effectively.
  • Connect with others for support and social interaction.
  • Take a moment for yourself to welcome the calm within — as you explore the inherent beauty of your creativity.
