We can all agree that moving our bodies more is one of the best things we can do for our wellness, right? But oftentimes, that’s as far as our consensus goes. While some people love to exercise and find it easy and enjoyable to carve out gym time in their day, many of us feel just the opposite. To this subset, exercise feels hard, painful and let’s be honest—b.o.r.i.n.g!
Not so at Glen Ivy Hot Springs. Our JoyFitness program is all about adding the joy back into exercise. When movement feels good, we are more likely to look forward to doing it, and water provides the perfect medium for getting back into the exercise groove. Our signature aqua classes, including Aqua Fit, Aqua Yoga, and PiYoH20, combine the supportive environment of the water with fun and energizing formats suitable for all fitness levels.
The same is true for our land based wellness programming. Each day we offer a variety of fitness and mind body classes such as Morning Core Stretch, HoopFit, Tai Chi, Hatha and Kundalini Yoga classes, and Gong Meditation. Classes are held on our beautiful activities deck overlooking the labyrinth, providing the perfect peaceful setting for reconnecting with what is truly important to you about your health and wellness.
The healing waters of the hot springs have been the main attraction for wellness seekers for over 155 years (oh, and the nachos too!). But now, our JoyFitness program gives you another reason to step out of your busy life and head to the hot springs for a feel good fitness experience. Visit the activities calendar on our website when you’re planning your next visit, and be sure to arrive early for check in. While loose, breathable clothing will make your fitness experience more comfortable, it is not mandatory. JoyFitness is all about come as you are, move in a way that feels good, and just enJOY the life affirming gift of movement.
