This G.U.T GATHERING is for young girls in the entertainment industry AND those who influence them. We encourage parents, guardians, fathers, mothers, grandparents, neighbors, role models, etc. to join us - as it is very much for them, too!
The purpose of the event is threefold:
1. To connect with your child,
2. To learn and practice to uplift yourself and others at auditions, on set, and in the various experiences you have as a young girl/guardian in the industry, and
3. To create an experience that is uplifting to the mind, body, and heart!
The event will be structured, but also very relaxed, with the intention to infuse uplifting energy into everyone! All attendees will have a chance to win in our raffle! Prizes include: Nina Shoes, a box from kidpik, a gift package from OMG Sew Cute, a G.U.T surprise, BeautyCounter, and something for the men!
We proudly collected 180+ pairs of socks, 90+ scarves, 20+ hats, and 35+ blankets to give back to the homeless. We have donated half of that to Fill-A-Belly.
In addition, G.U.T GIVES back 10% of all ticket sales to a charity that aligns with the G.U.T VALUES. This means that Fill-A-Belly will also be getting ten brand new sleeping bags to distribute to the homeless!
There are many ways to support with the rollercoaster of emotions the different parts of the business can bring. There will be dance, yoga, guided imagery, and interactive exercises related to the entertainment business, incorporating the G.U.T VALUES and PLEDGE - all of which will be broken down into delicious, easily digestible timeframes.

Courtney is a yoga instructor for people of all ages - and one of our main yogis at the Girl Uplifters Team™ events. Teaching yoga on the mat or in a classroom is where you can find Courtney Day.
She started her yoga journey training at If I Was a Bird Yoga in San Diego, then she was hired as a wellness/yoga teacher at El Camino Creek Elementary in Encinitas. While finishing her Masters in teaching for General Education and Special Education, Courtney stays busy as an Instructional aide within the Encinitas school district, teaches spin at Sparkcycle in Lajolla, and teaches kids yoga at Buddhi in La Jolla as well!
Her plan was to always be a classroom teacher... but her practice in yoga has created so many opportunities for her to implement the practice of yoga inside and outside the classroom. Her purpose in life is to help children.
