Movement is Medicine

Clara Hughes has lived a life in constant motion. From the highest level of sport, winning medals for Canada in speed skating and cycling, to long-distance hiking trails.

Since competing in her last Olympic Games, Hughes has spent months on the trail, as well as thousands of kilometres of bike touring, adventure kayaking, and so much more.

Moving through vast landscapes have, in her own words, “allowed for a disconnection to the fast and furious pace of modern society, slowing things down to the pace of a human being.” Through nature and the power of movement, she was able to heal.

Hughes shares how this opportunity to heal is available to us all. Through humour and practical advice, she helps audiences learn to “disconnect” so that they can reconnect with who they really are, let go of the fear of failing, and learn to truly feel.

  • When: Monday, January 18. The Okanagan Charter signing event will start at 10:45 a.m., followed by the Clara Hughes conference from 11 to 11:45 a.m.
  • Event language: English
