What is Koru?

Koru Mindfulness is an evidence-based program designed for teaching mindfulness and meditation to college-aged students. The name “Koru” comes from the Maori word for a spiral-shaped fern frond and represents balance, stability, and layered growth around a stable center. Your time in Koru will develop just that: A stable center from which to navigate life’s challenges. In this series you will learn skills for managing stress, developing self-compassion, and getting restful sleep. The Koru series is taught as a weekly, 75-minute class over four weeks by a trained UGA Koru instructor.
