Ask about custom mindfully active programs for sports teams & small groups
COVID-19 has modified plans for the world, including the UBU: Girls' future multi-week programs. With the need to keep social distance, I am taking things solely outdoors & offering a 3-week, 2X/week mindful run club option called Learn to Run Write.
This will be for those who identify as female and are youth in age ranges 9-11 or 12-14. Sessions are only an hour long, on Mondays & Wednesdays, or Wednesdays and Fridays, and will always be outdoors to provide space for physical distancing so we can still run as a group.
Eventbrite links are up for midday and after-school options. Sessions start Sept. 14. Sign up now!!
Typical UBU: Girls Programming:
UBU: Girls' program is a set of 8 sessions about active wellness (not drop-in), empowering young girls to be better communicators, more physically active, and more self-aware. The program emphasizes connection with others and our whole being: social, emotional, and physical.
UBU's founder leads most sessions while trained/expert guest instructors lead a few 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 the program concludes to collect qualitative data to continually improve.
Typical details for spring/fall 8-week programs include:
For youth who identify as female in Grades 6-8.
Max. 15 participants per program & min. of 8.
Multi-sessions involving group activities that encourage overall well-being--physical, social, mental, emotional.
UBU: Girls touches on a variety of well-being tools every session exposing participants to different ways that may help relieve stress, anxiety, self-doubt, etc. What works for them may not resonate with another participant, which is why I introduce a variety of activities that gravitate towards different learning styles and personality types.
Participants can expect to do some journaling, crafts, outdoor exploration, walking, physical activities, group work, and hearing guest speakers' inspirational stories. outside and walk, sometimes run or do exercises all with the intent to help participants become more self aware, self-regulate extreme emotions, and become more resilient to everyday stressors.
