Wellness Workshops & Events
Experience Fresh Perspectives & Inspiration.
Wellness is achieved when all dimensions of a person’s life are integrated and in balance: physical, emotional, and spiritual.
Here at STRATA Wellness at Garden of the Gods Resort and Club, our interactive wellness workshops, classes, and events are designed to engage, educate, and motivate participants to integrate wellness into their lives.
Following a two-year hiatus, the Art of Wellness is back.
Learn how creativity and self-exploration can support one’s well-being and integrated health to address such areas as self-discovery, depression, anxiety, happiness, improved memory, reasoning, stress and resilience.
Psychotherapist Ron Apgar of STRATA Med will lead participants of all ages through a mindful painting experience to discovery of self. The canvas painting is yours to keep for continued mindful exploration in the privacy of your own space.
Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. All supplies will be provided.
