Meditation Sessions

YLS offers free meditation sessions every other Wednesday at 12:10 pm sharp and 12:30 pm sharp in SLB Room 113.  Feel free to take part in one or both sessions.  Most sessions are led by Sue Neufeld, a Level 2 certified ParaYoga instructor. Meditation sessions are held in the Law School. 

If you're interested in starting a meditation practice, we invite you to try the 40 Day Meditation Challenge which consists of two 11-minute basic meditations (Yale NetID required). Try to do one of these every day for 40 days, and at the end of the challenge we hope you find yourself stronger and more ready to take on life's challenges!

We also have four Exam Meditation Recordings, led by Sue Neufeld from Yoga For You, available 24/7.
