Build physical resiliency for emotional and spiritual healing and transformation.

Courtney Bull, Founder of Urbanfitt, deals in truth and sincerity and incorporates a biopsychosocial approach to improving health.   We use mindfulness to wake up from your unconscious slumber and help transform addictive or compulsive behaviours that limit your potential, create strength and resilience after using your body in dysfunctional ways at work, find joy in movement, build a sense of efficacy by constantly learning new movement skills and going deeper into physical and somatic emotional awareness.  We educate you about your body so you can apply what you learn to any movement activity and your day to day life.
We are a trauma sensitive and trauma informed space.  We welcome all genders and sexual orientations.

Ditch New Year’s Resolutions and Join the “Become Your Own Rescuer” Challenge

I often get asked if January is my busiest time at Urbanfitt and gladly answer, NO. New Year’s Resolutions often feed the cycle of shame that is core to addictive or compulsive behaviours. In fact, periods of deprivation or hyper controlled behaviours fuel (and unconsciously justify) periods of compulsive/addictive cycles.

Since then, I’ve been including myofascial stretching in my training and added to my knowledge of myofascial stretching in the Fascial Stretch Therapy I became certified in. Then the next time I…

Eustress vs. distress – stress isn’t the enemy

I find it sort of funny when I hear about stress reduction programs and approaches out there that are focused on reducing stress in our lives.  It’s sort of impossible to get rid of stress or even reduce the potential for outside events to bring stress into our lives.  We just don’t have control over so much.  The only thing we have control over is our reactions to stressful events….

The Body Braid, Somatic Healing and Body Armoring

I’ve been exploring the potential benefits of the Body Braid soon after I first tried it on during Tensegrity Touch and Movement Therapy training with Diane Bruni at 80 Gladstone over a year ago. What is the Body Braid? The Body Braid is a soft, elastic body wrap that traces over the fascial spiral lines and provides gentle cues to help you move in healthy ways. Invented by a Canadian…

Why sitting makes us more anxious

It is true.  Sitting for long periods of the day makes people more anxious.  Sort of a no brainer.  Some people might tie it into simple things like over work, under exercise or stress from work etc etc.  But there’s something much more specific going on that ties into the nervous system regulation and trauma research I’ve been gobbling up. Recent research has yet again confirmed what we all know…
