Faculty & Staff events

Each year UBC Recreation hosts multiple events to support faculty and staff at UBC Okanagan.

Upcoming events

Lunch & Lift Workshop Series

Lunch & Lift is a series of free 2-in-1 interactive wellbeing workshops consisting of a 30-minute movement class, followed by a 30-minute interactive wellbeing session facilitated by a UBC wellbeing professional. Different fitness classes and wellbeing professionals will be showcased each month. These sessions will not only allow you to get some exercise in over lunch time but will also provide you with some great tips and tricks to support a healthy mind and body. All registered participants in attendance at each session will be entered in a draw to WIN prizes each month.
