Description

Come join the fun for FREE! The University of Florida is hosting a FUN, FREE relationship workshop called Elevate: Taking Your Relationship to the Next Level for dating, married, engaged, and cohabiting couples.

The instructor will share nine important communication skills in every relationship and ways to increase positive communication, deal with differences, manage stress, set financial goals, and maintain a happy and healthy friendship bond. Couples will participate in fun relationship-strengthening activities with their partner during the workshop.

The instructor will also discuss the physiology of love and how the heart-brain connection impacts relationships. She will introduce the concept of mindfulness as a potential way of being present and intentional within the couple relationship.

This exciting workshop will be held on THURSDAYS from 6:00-8:30 once a week for 5 weeks on Feb. 13th, Feb. 20th, Feb. 27th, Mar. 5th, and Mar. 19th (class will NOT be held on Mar. 12th due to spring break).
