Event description

Description

Women's Health and Wellness Day is a celebration of women’s bodies and an opportunity for education and empowerment. The event will cover a wide range of wellness topics, including nutrition, meditation, yoga and pelvic health.

Now it its second year, the event stems from ITR Physical Therapy founder Jennifer Chu's passion to change our culture's conversation about how we as women feel about our bodies in general and in particular about the center of our bodies: our pelvis.

The mission of WHWD, a project of ITR Physical Therapy, is to empower women through education. By the time we are in our 80s over 50% of women will have some sort of pelvic floor disorder. WHWD aims to reduce the isolation women feel and help us all claim our power, support each other, and honor our beautiful core.

The event will include presentation-style learning opportunities as well as experiential classes including yoga, meditation, and dance.

In order to personalize your experience at WHWD, this year’s event will include free 10-15 minute private discovery sessions with ITR Physical Therapy: mini consultations for physical therapy and for functional nutrition. Additional practitioners may also offer one-on-one sessions. Stay tuned for details about the offerings and how to sign up!

We are pleased to be holding this year’s event at Rise Well-Being Center in Reston, VA, a beautiful studio that opened in March as “a place for attaining balance, peace and well-being in our lives.” With its indoor garden and many different classrooms, treatment rooms and its large open movement studio, this unique oasis will provide the perfect setting for our day together. Learn more about Rise at risewellbeing.center.

Some vegan lunch options will be available for purchase at on site, and there are several restaurants conveniently located near Rise.
