Campus Health and Wellness Opportunities

The University of Richmond Weinstein Center for Recreation & Wellness offers many classes that are perfect for Osher members. Director of Health Promotion Heather Sadowski suggests these classes:

  • Yoga Fundamentals
  • Water Works (Water aerobics)

Classes are offered at not cost to Weinstein Center members or $5 per class for Osher members with UR ID.

For days and times for any of these classes, please check on the web site. Just come a bit early, and check in and/or pay at the front desk. The customer service representatives can direct you to locker rooms, if you need them and also to the class location.

Also, please remember that one-day use of the Weinstein Center for Recreation and Wellness is available to all Osher members with your UR ID for $5 per day. Within the center, you may use any of the equipment and take any class offered that day (there are no sign-ups, so it is first come, first served).

Osher members may also join the Weinstein Center as community members. Typically, there is a wait list, but please review the web site for the application and all other information regarding membership.
