25 Jan Aspen Wellness morning 2016
The event was dedicated to living well. It is normally a tradition throughout the world for most people to start anew in spring, this gave us the opportunity to create awareness of the importance of Wellness in Aspen. The morning kicked off at 8am with a Fun 5km walk/ run sponsored by Brooks Running. Our residents came out with their bikes, pets and kids. After 30 minutes the winners arrived at the finish line, the first three in won gold medals while the kids got participation medals (see photo attached). Aspen hosted Sunrise Yoga with Jasmin who introduced the importance of balance and taking time out for yourself. The Pilates class showed how strength is important in everyday life.
After the morning activities, guests were given the opportunity to explore what the local wellness community has to offer including Dischem Wellness Clinic where residents could get health checks done, Vision Works at the Mall Of The South offered free visual and glaucoma screening. Chiropractic Mobility Clinic offered free primal screening. Other stalls consisted of banting eats, diet clinics and wellness products.
