A Whole-Person Motivation
Wellbeing is personal, and each person is unique.
For some, self-directed health and fitness work well. Others respond better to personal guidance and support.
Our new approach — rooted in integrative health and whole-person wellbeing practices — gives you another option for healthy living at the Y.
Instead of a "one size fits all" program, our board-certified practitioners help you plan and navigate your personal wellbeing journey. By combining virtual small group health coaching with in-person options for deeper engagement, our George Wellbeing programs can help you become a better you.
Open to all – YMCA membership is not required.
Our new and evolving George Wellbeing programs and services are available to everyone!
Wellbeing recognizes spirit, mind, body, community, and environment all impact our wellbeing.

Boosting your immune fitness with healthy habits
Each of our daily choices — from eating to sleeping to moving to being with others — impact our immune response, including the potential for tissue-damaging inflammation. And while stress is a normal part of life, how we react to it can also have a positive or negative, inflammatory effect on our immune function. Explore and learn about these connections while creating and implementing an empowering, energizing plan to pump up your immune fitness.
Mental and Emotional Wellbeing
Practicing self-care for a more balanced you
Self-care is essential to our mental and emotional wellbeing. Just as we care for our physical wellbeing, we also must care for our mental and emotional wellbeing. An effective, sustainable self-care practice is comprised of many restorative moments and habits experienced throughout the day. It’s also unique to you and your life. Explore and create opportunities to improve your mental and emotional wellbeing through rest, nourishment, movement, and mindfulness.
