Wellness Workshops

Wellness Workshops

Our Wellness Workshops are fun, interactive and hands on.

The focus is on making small and simple steps towards learning to enjoy a healthy way of life. We encourage positive lifestyle changes to avoid the negative consequences of chronic diseases.

Our mission for the Wellness Workshops is to educate and increase participants understanding of why it’s important to eat healthy, the benefits of being physically active and to gain knowledge about the importance of eating a variety of different food groups.

The goal is to promote ways of learning to enjoy a healthy way of life by teaching participants simple ways to begin eating healthy, and to have a more physically active lifestyle. A lack of knowledge could be the prime factor for many of our health problems like obesity, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer.

Positive Learning Experiences

Participants are appreciated for their interest in attending the workshops. When someone attends a workshop it indicates that they are taking steps in learning how to enjoy a healthy way of life and to make the changes that are necessary. Participants learn from the facilitator, but also develop knowledge and skills from the hands on activities and by learning from each other's success stories and encouragement. 

The Wellness Workshop Series are held in the Spring and Fall months.
