Mindfulness Training - Koru Classes

Join the Health Promotion Office for Mindfulness Training through the Koru Basics Mindfulness classes. Koru Mindfulness® is an evidence-based curriculum specifically designed for teaching mindfulness, meditation, and stress management to college students and other young adults.

Koru Basics is a 4 session course that will teach you the skill of mindfulness. It will also help you build the habit of using it in your life on a regular basis.

The Koru Basic classes are FREE open to all UofL students, faculty & staff! We’ve found that folks get a lot more out of Koru if they stick with it from beginning to end, therefore attendance at all 4 sessions is highly recommended. So double check your calendar and then sign up.

*For UofL Employees - Health Advocate Wellness Points Available: 250
