UBU's spring & fall weekly program is an active wellness set of progressional sessions (not drop-in) for young girls to help them grow peer connections through physical activity and communication. It empowers them to build positive lifelong habits for their overall well-being.
UBU's Founder leads most sessions while qualified guest instructors lead some workshops that involve their area of expertise: connecting with nature, yoga, dance, speed training, injury prevention, etc.
Parents/guardians are kept in the loop of activities with weekly emails/updates along with surveys (for girls and guardians) to determine baselines at the beginning of sessions, midway, and after to collect qualitative data.
For girls in Grades 6-8 (max. 12 participants per program, min of 9 for program to run).
Edmonton's 7-week spring program will be Sundays from 2:30-4:30 p.m. at Propel Sports Physio (Whitemud) from April 7-June 2.
Sherwood Park's 7-week spring program will be Thursdays from 6-8 p.m. at KEYLIME Athletic Wear from April 18-May 30.
These are not drop-in classes, therefore please check spring schedules for conflicts as this is a 7-week fun commitment involving group activities that encourage overall, holistic well-being.
You be You Wellness (UBU) emphasizes the need for girls to be themselves. Be you. The program helps girls be proud of their individual talents, acknowledge their challenges, and voluntarily be more physically active to boost lifelong healthy habits.
UBU emphasizes the idea to young girls that if they take care of themselves by moving more while supporting others, the combination will positively impact their overall well-being.
