Urban Aboriginal Healthy Living Program

Services being provided by Urban Aboriginal Healthy Living Program during COVID-19 Pandemic

The Urban Aboriginal Healthy Living program has continued to offer many of the same programming services only now they are in virtual form rather than in person. Every day during the week there is a virtual exercise class that you can follow along on Facebook Live: Mondays & Fridays are a virtual stretch class; Tuesdays & Thursdays are The Fitness Shift, a more intense exercise class for individuals looking to build fitness; and Wednesdays are a Low-impact exercise class, a full body workout that’s easy on the joints, especially the knees. All of these classes can be found at Facebook.com/uahlnechee/live/

In addition to virtual classes, nutritional videos are always being uploaded to the UAHL Facebook page, facebook.com/uahlnechee/. Daily videos are posted showcasing different smoothie recipes and at least once a week, a video making a healthy recipe is posted in a segment called ‘Cooking with Calisha’.

Other services the UAHL coordinator is offering include personalized exercise plans and smoking cessation help.


For services please contact UAHL coordinator at uahl@nechee.org .

We all must do our part by isolating and social distancing but that doesn’t mean we can’t stay healthy!
