WELLNESS DEPARTMENT STRATEGY
We live in a world of high stress and constant stimulation, yet we spend very little time on self-care. It’s no wonder why so many of us feel out of balance mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Fortunately, there are a variety of options for holistic wellness and Unity Plaza is dedicated to bringing these resources to the forefront of our community’s awareness. As we work to shift the health paradigm from a reactive care model to a more preventative and whole-person focused system, we will play our part in bringing forward the necessary educational and experiential learning processes for evolving our consciousness as a civilization. Our programming will feature the best of evidence-based practices in health and wellness, alongside cutting-edge programs that challenge the current perception of possibilities. Our experience-focused and integrative programming will feature:
- Ongoing daily activities for community health & wellness (i.e. yoga, meditation, and tai chi)
- Recurring programs for department pillars (listed below)
- World class workshops presented by guest teachers
- Unity Plaza custom designed wellness events and programs including seminars, symposiums, corporate wellness programs, and conferences.
