SEPTEMBER 19–AUGUST 12, 2020 | 12:00 PM

Join us for a 1-hour yoga session led by Dr. Debby Patz and other guest instructors, held virtually until Aug 12, 2020. This free yoga session is part of #WellnessWednesday, a partnership between the Wellness Center and Galleries of Contemporary Art (GOCA) at UCCS.

GOCA and the Wellness Center have teamed up to promote wellness and self-care across the UCCS community by offering free meditation and yoga sessions. While they can't currently take place in the current exhibition in the Marie Walsh Sharpe Gallery, you can join us virtually every Wednesday as Dr. Patz leads us from her Facebook page. These free programs take place every Wednesday (with closures for holidays)

Debby Patz, PsyD, CAC III, E-RYT is a licensed clinical psychologist with a specialty in addictions. Debby is a firm believer than true health incorporates mind, body and spirit. You can find her at the UCCS Recreation and Wellness Center, Mental Health Services, where she is a staff psychologist offering individual therapy as well as group yoga therapy. Debby has been practicing yoga for over 20 years and has taught in many venues since 2009, including a weekly class for UCCS community for the past five years.


GOCA is a regional hub of contemporary art, culture and conversation. By featuring world-class artists, hosting artist and expert talks, and offering meaningful events, GOCA engages UCCS students, faculty, staff and Pikes Peak Region community members in contemporary culture and life. GOCA is a contemporary arts organization with two galleries, founded in 1980. The Marie Walsh Sharpe Gallery in the new Ent Center for the Arts at UCCS opened in 2018, and a satellite downtown location opened in 2010 in the Plaza of the Rockies building (GOCA 121).


Wellness Promotion is the public health and outreach division of the Recreation and Wellness Center. The program aims to foster a healthy environment to increase students’ success and well-being. All UCCS students have the right to make informed decisions about their health while at school and beyond, and the Recreation and Wellness Center supports students in helping develop the skills to do so through outreach programs, discussions, and events. In addition, the Center's educational focus promotes understanding of the factors that improve health both for individuals and communities, and supports those making health behavior changes. Learn more here.
