About the Health and Wellness Movement

The Whittier Uptown Association (WUA) is pleased to host it’s first Health & Wellness Movement in September 2016.  This free event will be held on the Greenleaf Grassy Area occurring four consecutive Saturdays from September through October. The challenge is to get moving on Saturday mornings. This is an opportunity for the community to experience the fun in learning to live a more active lifestyle by discovering different types of physical activities in the beautiful setting of Historic Uptown Whittier. Classes will include Yoga, Zumba, Hip-Hop Dance and Hiking 101 for all ages.  Through the series of workshops, individuals will find the type of exercise that best suits them. Instructors and vendors will primarily be merchants from the WUA business district. 


Schedule:     9:15am – 10:30am / Workshops     

Dates:          Saturday, September 17th / Yoga*
        Saturday, September 24th / Zumba*
        Saturday, October 1st / Hip-Hop Dance*
        Saturday, October 8th / Hiking 101*
Cost:            FREE to attend


Residents, the community and the City of Whittier are invited to attend.  After the workshops, participants will have the chance to stroll through health-related vendor booths consisting primarily of WUA businesses and leisurely navigate through Uptown Whittier for brunch and shopping in our beautiful district.
