Integral yoga at ECU will give you the personal toolkit you need to really thrive at Uni! Yoga is so much more than just exercise. While it does counter balance conventional physical exercise by lengthening tightened muscles; it also balances out mental and emotional strain that can detract from the pleasure of learning. Integral yoga helps with co-ordination, concentration and most importantly, teaches you how to relax! There's no better way to fly through university than to do it with all your mental, physical and emotional faculties at the fore. Make uni a breeze by learning how to restore and maintain your own energy and to direct it exactly where you want it to go. Fix your goals deep into your mind through yogic techniques with Integral yoga. It's easy, anyone can do it and classes are adapted to suit everyone. Free to all students.

Warning! Metafit will seriously change your body. You will burn fat, tone up and get stronger, fitter and leaner within a matter of weeks.
Metafit was created by a former Royal Marine Commando and a national gymnast in the UK and is extremely popular over there. This training combines traditional body-weight exercises with the latest interval and Tabata techniques to set the metabolism on fire! It is suitable for beginners through to the advanced fitness enthusiast.
Hard, fast, and effective! The classes last just 30 minutes, but don’t be fooled, a lot can happen in 30 minutes, and you will continue to burn fat for hours and hours beyond the class.
We rely on the support of others and believe it’s important to acknowledge those who give up their time to help out with events and programs run on campus with our Student Engagement Record.
At the end of each year students from various courses are selected to receive the Engagement Award Medal and a written Certificate of Achievement. The selections are based on levels of engagement and recommendations from staff. A student engagement record is an ideal addition to your academic transcript when applying for a job or further study in the future.
This competition allows students to display their creative talents to the rest of the campus as well as prestigious judges from the South West Region and the Metropolitan areas. Entries open in September and the winners receive generous prizes at a presentation ceremony held during the last week of Semester 2.
