Fitness and Wellness
Shape is vital to art and sculpture. It’s also vital to the artist. Getting in shape and staying in shape are what we actively pursue in the Fitness and Wellness Program. Our new facility, housed in the Student Life Activity Center, is dedicated to bringing the benefits — physically, artistically and emotionally — to the IAIA curriculum.
The relationship between physical health, emotional well being and spiritual awareness is well known, and that is our focus and our offering. Our Fitness and Wellness programs promote health through all of the dimensions of wellness and physical movement, to enhance longevity and quality of life. Physical health is a necessity for success.
It’s time to get moving. Fitness Center activities and classes will help you achieve a healthier lifestyle, including physical activity, nutrition, meditation, and creative movement.
