Wellness Workshops & Classes


We often leave a healthcare provider’s office with suggestions of what we need to do or need to change to feel better. However, doing things differently is often easier said than done. This is where we come in.

The workshops and series classes at Healthwise integrate mind-body education with practice so that you can “learn by doing.” Not only do we provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills, but our studio space allows for active learning (practice).

Our studio offers an opportunity for you to learn mind-body skills that can help you to better manage difficult emotions, ward off stress, calm your anxiety, tame your inner narrator and boost your mood.

As evidence-based practice is at the core of our services, our focus is on skill building that works. Our workshops will teach you what to do and how to do to it. You are supported and guided as you create the change you need.
