Au Pair Experience Home > Au Pair Experience Online - Special Social Distancing Series

Self Care Toolbox for Au Pairs   

In order to reflect CUNY's decision to hold distance-learning courses, Au Pair Experience will be continuing in an online format. Online courses will be held for the same number of credits as our in-person option. Please email us with questions at


Through discussions, lectures, group work, and practical activities, students will become more aware of wellness and managing stress levels.

Class explores body awareness, the history of yoga, and the physical effects of stress. Students also explore how to use techniques from class in your daily life, such as job interviews, public speaking, dealing with challenging people, and test-taking. The self-care toolbox is here to help you create your most grateful, happy self.

Two bonus classes will be available to students who are interested in exploring more! The additional class sessions are not required. There is no charge for attending the bonus classes.
