GATHER FOR FITNESS AND WELLNESS

To be healthy is to be loving!

How can we turn our exercise experience into a joyful and meaninful adventure?  

The Fit for Joy vision challenges us to embody the "true" meaning of health in all areas of our lives. It's about body-mind-spirit awareness and practice. 

It's about kindness and wellness. It's about awareness and self-discovery.

The gatherings are designed to nurture your body's health through exercise and diet, to cultivate moments of peace through mindful meditation, to motivate and inspire you to be happy through listening to your own heart. 

We sing along, we dance, we have meaningful conversations.     

We come together to practice the art of living a happier, kinder and healthier life.

Fit for Joy is about being true to our hearts to create inner and outer peace.
