Yoga, Zumba, more return for ‘Be Well in the Big House’


Yoga, Zumba and football-inspired drills will once again take over the field at Michigan Stadium.

After a two-year hiatus, “Be Well in the Big House,” a free event organized by MHealthy, returns Sept. 15.

Faculty and staff can join in health and wellness activities both on and off the field of the Big House. Virtual well-being sessions will also lead off the week, Sept. 12-14.

Three, 45-minute sessions will take place on the field. All fitness levels and abilities are encouraged to sign up. Early registration is recommended as space is limited. Register for up to two sessions:

  • 3 p.m. — Football Drills and Thrills (no equipment required)
  • 4 p.m. — Yoga
  • 5 p.m. — Zumba

Plenty is happening off the field as well. Registration is not required to take part in activities on the concourse, which include health and well-being experts, 15-minute cardio drumming sessions, 10-minute stress reduction/self-compassion demos, Maize and Blue Cupboard donation drop-off and more.

In the days leading up to the Michigan Stadium event, faculty and staff can attend virtual Zoom sessions focused on nutrition, financial well-being and kindness:

  • 11 a.m. Sept. 12 — Ten Budgeting Tips to Beat Inflation
  • 3 p.m. Sept. 13 — Batch Cooking
  • 2 p.m. Sept. 14 — Growing More of a Good Thing: Cultivating Kindness, Gratitude, and Compassion for Well-Being

These are good options for anyone who cannot attend the in-person event or wants to explore more health-related topics.
