There’s was something about WUB that drew us to Banff last November for a long weekend.
And what is WUB? We asked the same question …
As described by founder Paul Puzanoski, “WUB hosts conscious gatherings.”
It’s not an acronym or a real word, but it does sound a little like “love” — the exact experience it creates.
“We’re a wellness brand passionate about fostering personal growth, connection, transformation, smiles, change, healing, friendship, inner peace, self-care, community and more,” he explains.
Launching the gathering came out of what Puzanoski says was a loud calling and hard push from the universe. Maybe that’s what brought us to Banff, too.
Bobby L’Heureux and I, owners of this magazine, decided to explore this intriguing event in what we knew would be a beautiful location. It’s true you can’t go wrong with a visit to Banff, especially paired with a delightful dose of wellness and connection.
“With the Banff gathering, our focus was to deliver an incredibly well-organized and high-quality wellness experience like no one has seen before,” shares Puzanoski. “It quickly snowballed in such a spectacular way and ended up turning into a life changing experience for not just our guests, but our team as well.”
The experience was everything we imagined, and more. From lovely sunrise yoga overlooking the mountains to sound baths, live music, fascinating speakers and inspirational learnings, WUB was wonderful.
Since the launch of WUB, Puzanoski and his team have started producing one-day gatherings to take place in various cities. There could be one coming to Colorado soon, but I do recommend a visit to Canada for WUB if you can.
“We have a lot of big announcements and things planned for the rest of the year and we plan to stay true to our vision of offering incredible transformational events and experiences,” says Puzanoski.
Details for the annual Banff gathering and more WUB tour dates in western Canada are soon to be finalized, along with some custom offerings and programs for groups and individuals.
“Moving forward we just plan on doing what we love and helping as many people as we can along the way with our events,” Puzanoski shares. “We eat, sleep and breathe transformation and really just hope to keep growing. We’re extremely grateful to have such an incredible team and community supporting us. We can’t say for sure how WUB will evolve but we’re buckled up for the ride and excited to see where the universe takes it.”
