Steam & Stretch the Exam Stress Away!

Soak & Steam in the UBC Aquatic Centre
UBC Students are invited to join us for our free Steam & Stretch programs at the UBC Aquatic Centre. Students will enjoy a guided stretch in our Sauna focusing on back relaxation and shoulder mobility. They will then move to the Steam Room for a quick guided meditation where they will exhale out their worries and stress. Students will finish their experience with stretching in the hot tub. Unwind, relax and refresh your mind and body.

Taking a break from sedentary activities like studying and incorporating movement and meditation have been shown to improve physical and mental wellbeing. The UBC Aquatic Centre is committed to supporting the wellbeing of the UBC community with free programs like this. If you have any feedback or ideas please reach out at

No swimming experience necessary. The hot tub is a shallow depth (0.9m). Bathing suit required.
