Sport at the UdG

Summer subjects


During the summer you can continue doing sport and accumulating ECTS for the UdG’s academic recognition program. We offer you a series of June, July and September courses where you can continue to do sport after your classes have finished, and which enable you to gain the credits you still need. Each course is equivalent to 1 ECTS.

This allows for improved flexibility to strengthen the body, lengthen the spine and relax the nervous system.

No previous experience is required; anybody in good health can benefit from doing Unnata® air yoga. Teacher: Cristina Planellas
