UCHealth is donating all proceeds from evrē to Project C.U.R.E. to send medical supplies to Ukraine.

What is evre?

evrē—pronounced “every”—is UCHealth’s signature health initiative celebrating all women.
 
Thank you to all who attended!
UCHealth presents evrē, a health and wellness event for women. This year, we’re reconnecting to redefine what R&R means to you. With speaker workshops, fitness classes, health screenings, a local-maker market and more, we’ll go beyond rest and relaxation to emerge refreshed and ready for what’s next.

2022 Workshop Speaker

Karen M. Allen

Founder of the 100% Human movement, Karen Allen describes herself as a recovering perfectionist and mindset expert who speaks about mindfulness and teaches others about how to feel better, live better and achieve their goals.

Karen was a 29-year-old widow with a two-year-old. On the quest to rebuild her life, she discovered healthy habits and lifestyle changes that helped her find her way back to a whole heart. Now, she shares practical advice and life strategies that provide tangible results and skills to help people push through the everyday challenges we all face in life and work.

Karen is the creator of the mental exercise, Stop & Shift, a method she developed to help people jumpstart their mental strength training. It is a simple, yet powerful, technique that explains how to let go of negative thinking and move to more productive and positive thinking.

A certified grief recovery specialist, Karen’s client list includes NBC’s Golf Channel, Hubspot, Universal Orlando Parks & Resorts, Sprint and many more.

2022 Fitness Instructors

Amberle Zuerlein, Empower Boxing

Amberle Zuerlein threw her first punch in 2017 and has not stopped since. As an amateur fighter and founder of Empower Boxing Denver, she has helped many others “find their fight.” The Empower Boxing studio provides a space where clients can enjoy the mental and physical challenges of boxing in group classes, one-on-one training and open gym times without the intimidation factor and is committed to meeting each individual where they are in their training.

Lindsey Girardot Teets, Pure Barre

A fifth-generation Colorado native, Lindsey Girardot Teets did a 12-year stint in Los Angeles to pursue a professional acting, dancing and singing career. It was there that she also became a reformer Pilates instructor and taught at the city’s first Pure Barre studio. She returned to Denver in 2009 to open the first nationally franchised location and Colorado’s first Pure Barre studio in Cherry Creek. She quickly grew the brand’s presence, becoming a legend in the Pure Barre universe while opening, moving and selling studios across the city. Today, she owns her original Cherry Creek location as well as one in Union Station.

Keri Bergeron, Yoga Instructor

Keri Bergeron fell in love with the practice of yoga as a natural adjunct to her extensive study of the body as a physical therapist. She has trained with master teachers for more than 20 years to access her heart, inner strength and softness, and she focuses on alignment as the main principle guiding her teaching. Keri believes that proper physical alignment and engagement are essential for safety, stability and space in the body and that what starts on the surface “trickles inward” to build internal awareness and better alignment with one’s truest self.

Jillian Keaveny, Compass Fitness

Jillian Keaveny has taught fitness and yoga in Colorado for more than fifteen years. She is presently a full-time fitness and yoga instructor, personal trainer and certified Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) in Denver as well as a co-founder of Compass Fitness and lululemon legacy ambassador. Jillian is USA Weightlifting Level 1-certified and has been a 200-hour RYS certified yoga instructor since 2010. She has her B.A. in kinesiology.

Schedule a Mammogram

It’s never too early to start thinking about your breast health, so we want to make it easy to schedule a mammogram and learn more from a UCHealth breast-health educator. Women who receive regular mammograms have a 47% lower risk of dying from breast cancer compared to those who don’t—and the good news is that breast cancer deaths have declined since 1990 due to early detection, better screening, increased awareness and new treatment options. Let’s keep the momentum going!

Gait Analysis and Pelvic Floor Assessment

Body alignment, proper movement mechanics and pelvic-floor function are key to injury reduction and performance at every fitness level. CU Sports Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation will provide personalized movement analyses and pelvic floor assessments to evre attendees on a walk in basis. You will leave with a summary and a list of exercises to do at home to improve strength, balance, flexibility and agility.

Healthy Hearts Biometric Screening

UCHealth Healthy Hearts will offer blood tests with the option of more detailed biometric screenings that look at blood pressure, cholesterol levels and more. Awareness and early detection of issues allow each participant to make empowered choices for a heart-healthy lifestyle.

Join the Biobank

The Colorado Center for Personalized Medicine is building a biobank with participants’ genetic information to get a comprehensive view on how genetic differences might help predict, diagnose, treat and prevent disease now and in the future. We’ll have representatives collecting saliva samples at the event, and you can sign the consent form ahead of time in your My Health Connection portal if you’re already a UCHealth patient. When you contribute a saliva sample or blood sample, your genetic data and medical records could play an important role in advancing health care for all of humankind.

What is appropriate attire for the event?

Attendees are welcome to wear athleisure attire for working out/practicing yoga. 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).

What if the weather that day is cold and snowy? Will I be able to change/put a heavy coat and boots somewhere?

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.

What do I need to bring?

  • Have your Eventbrite ticket available (either visible on your cell phone, in a confirmation email, or hard copy print out)
  • Bring your signed waiver for check in if you did not submit via email (we also will have waivers on hand if you need one)
  • Wear appropriate apparel & footwear if you are participating in a fitness class or yoga
  • Bring a yoga mat if you plan to participate in the barre3 class or either of the yoga sessions
  • Some of the drop-in vendors will have items for sale, so you may want to bring a wallet/purse.

Your registration fee covers all fitness classes, main stage presentations, drop-in demos, assessments, chair massages, one free health screening (either biometric screen or other) food and refreshments throughout the morning, and a special giveaway to all attendees.

Do I need to bring my own yoga mat?

Yes. If you plan to participate in the barre3 class and/or the yoga sessions, we kindly ask you to bring your own mat. We only have a very limited number of mats to borrow. It is do-able for yoga poses/barre3 exercises to be performed directly on the artificial turf, but just more comfortable to have a mat.

Will there be food/beverages available?

Light offerings (including vegan and gluten-free options) will be available throughout the event so you can grab and go and enjoy in the lounge area or in your seat during presentations on the main stage.
