“Fitness is about taking time to connect to yourself and something bigger than yourself,” says health and wellness champion Giovanna Abraham.
She is one of the instructors for classes for UWindsor faculty and staff run by Lancer Recreation during weekday lunch periods in the Education Gym.
“Fitness is about creating harmony between your mind, your body, and your heart so that you may feel whole and truly healthy,” Abraham says. “It’s also about equipping yourself with the tools necessary for healing and for knowing it’s OK to fall.”
She says she loves to create a safe space for people to feel like they belong, by her students’ side supporting them all the way.
One-hour classes begin at noon in the gym, located between the University Computer Centre and the CAW Student Centre:
- Tuesdays — Fab, Fit, and Fun with Abraham
Target your entire body with yoga and Pilates fusion movements that will leave you toned, sculpted, and strong.
- Thursdays — Full Body Fit with Abraham

- Wednesdays and Fridays — Yoga Mid-day Release with Nicole Daignault
