Stretch Breaks

Exam Stretch Breaks

Exam Stretch Breaks take place on the first floor of the library in December and April. A link to the schedule can be found here during those times.

Lecture Stretch Breaks

The Department of Athletics and Recreation is offering Laurier faculty a new program to increase student engagement in lectures through physical activity. Lecture stretch breaks are designed to give students a productive break from course content and improve their focus for the remainder of the lecture. A student leader lead stretch will consist of a 10-15 minute stretch designed to increase and restore blood flow, reduce stress on overworked muscles and restore student focus in the classroom.     

We offer different programs based on length of class:

  • 3 hour lecture
  • 10 stretch sessions in the middle of lecture time
  • A student leader to guide the session
  • 50 minute or 1.5 hour lecture
  • 5 minute video stretch guide
Here is the FREE download of our stretch breaks for use in any lecture or departmental function on campus!

All stretch breaks and programs are offered free of charge by the department. If you have any questions contact Olivia Ellerby
