What is evre?

UCHealth presents evrē – our signature health and wellness event celebrating all women. Join us for a morning of fitness offerings, hands-on demos, inspirational presentations; plus, drop-in health screenings, a bit of retail therapy courtesy of local businesses in the wellness space, and light refreshments throughout the morning.

2020 Speakers

Workshop Presentation by Jacki Carr

Let’s talk about the B words: Busy, Balance and Boundaries.

Goal coach and motivational speaker Jacki Carr joins us for a conversation around the elusive concept of balance.

Attendees will walk away with:

  • A new relationship with what it means to be busy (it is not always a bad thing!)
  • A new definition of balance to support overall wellness.
  • Tools to create boundaries that honor one’s internal motivation to say yes or no.

Whether on one of her signature Goals Hikes or on a retreat on the Green River with her clients, Jacki is a leader in transformation, known for facilitating real conversations and authentic connection under a new approach to goal-setting. She believes in a world where we all truly belong and each and every one of us has unique gifts to contribute.

Even if you do not plan to participate in any of the fitness classes or yoga sessions, you are still encouraged to come in comfortable, relaxed attire. As temperatures can be cooler inside the UCHealth Training Center due to the extremely large space/high ceilings, bringing layers is recommended (e.g., fleece jacket, warm up jacket, vest).

Yes. Attendees will be able to store heavy coats/boots if needed inside the UCHealth Training Center.


Will there be changing rooms if I want to change after a fitness class?

Yes, you will have access to restrooms and the locker room to change if desired.

  • Wear appropriate apparel & footwear if you are participating in a fitness class or yoga
