Yoga and Meditation Resources
Many in the Santa Clara community practice yoga both for the physical and spiritual wellness it stimulates. When we are in person, we hope to resume Candlelight Yoga in the Multifaith Sanctuary, as it was a very popular gathering for students. While we are engaged in distance learning, we encourage you to find an online yoga class that suits you and supports your practice. Ignatian Yoga integrates the practices of Ignatian Spirituality with Yoga. Jiaren Yoga Studio is a local studio, run by a Santa Clara alum. The studio is blocks from campus, and they offer online classes as well.
