Meeting Descriptions

  • Recovery Fit: This is a time used for fitness. Students will be able to exercise with their peers in a safe and supportive way. This will include going to Urec as a group, following a yoga or fitness instructional video in our group room or having volunteer certified teachers come lead a class.
