The Get Fit Cargo Bike programme: FREE lessons/ activities for staff based at Utrecht Science Park and inner city
It is healthy to get away from your PC and workplace at regular intervals. Afterwards, you will feel much fitter and energised.  Also, the adverse affects on your health of sitting down for long periods at a time is becoming increasingly more obvious, so taking active breaks is very important.  But above all it is fun!

Each Tuesday, 12:30 - 1:15 PM: YOGA at Olympos or in the Botanical gardens

Wind down during a busy day of work and enjoy the free yoga lessons! In summer (May-September), the lessons will be held in the beautiful Botanical Gardens . Registration is not necessary, you can just join us at the main entrance of the Botanical Gardens (Budapestlaan 17) each Tuesday at 12.30 PM. From October, the lessons will be in Olympos (Danszaal 2) We provide the yoga mats; you only have to take a towel, if you wish. The free yoga lessons are open to all levels and ‘no sweat’; as a result they can easily be fitted in to your work day (without the need for a shower). 
Free yoga in the inner city too! (at the old Hortus Botanicus)
As a result of the large interest in the free yoga lessons, we now also offer them to staff in the inner city at the wonderfully beautiful location of the Hortus Botanicus / Universiteitsmuseum (Lange Nieuwstraat 106). Dates:  Wednesday 4 March, 18 March and 8 April 2020 (Time: 4-5 PM).
