Amenities & Features: Health & Wellness
Comprehensive Wellness Program
We believe the key to a healthy, balanced life is supporting all six dimensions of wellness—physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social, and vocational. That’s why we’ve established a wellness program that provides opportunities to enhance each of these dimensions.
- Our active events calendar helps bolster social wellness.
- Our first-rate fitness and aquatic center and numerous exercise classes, massage therapy, and other spa-style amenities help you maintain physical wellness.
- Our vast array of hobby and discussion groups help promote vocational and intellectual wellness.
- Though spiritual and emotional wellness are more personal, we also provide services and amenities than can help, such as nondenominational religious services or a beautiful outdoor garden through which to walk and reflect.
