Our Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Workshops are designed to give you the insight and information you need to build a holistic lifestyle practice. 

Our workshop topics focus on healthy eating, active living and weight loss/weight management to help you build a healthy lifestyle that’s unique to your needs and abilities. 

How it Works

Through HEAL workshops, you’ll meet in a virtual group setting (via Zoom) and work with other Y members and a trained facilitator to explore various topics. You can attend one or multiple workshops. 

From Understanding Food Labels and Mindful-Based Eating Practices to Increasing Physical Activity and Overcoming Exercise Barriers, we have something for everyone looking to build a lifelong lifestyle practice grounded in well-being.
