Wellness is not a ‘medical fix’ but a way of living – a lifestyle sensitive and responsive to all the dimensions of body, mind, and spirit, an approach to life we each design to achieve our highest potential for well-being now and forever. – Greg Anderson

As part of the mind, body, spirit trifecta we, at the Made Well Center, believe caring for our physical bodies creates healthier avenues for caring for our mind and spirit. When our bodies aren’t cared for properly this inhibits healthy decision making skills, decreases our ability to fight mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety, and decreases our ability to focus and have concentration. The mind, body, and spirit all have to be care for to increase healthier habits, creating holistic well beings. It all works in harmony with one another.
The CDC states that adult individuals should be exercising 150 minutes (2.5 hrs) a week at a moderate to intense level for substantial health benefits.
Children should be exercising at least 60 minutes DAILY at a moderate-intense level.
Exercising should vary between muscle strengthening, and aerobic, as well as bone strengthening.

The way we care for our physical bodies at Made Well Center is by offering yoga classes in various styles, personal training to meet individual strength needs, private yoga sessions, as well as workshops that attend to multiple other physical needs such as nutrition, and strength training. These classes and workshops can be found on our calendars pages.
