Get Warmed Up at Empower Yoga

Screen Shot 2015-10-14 at 7.16.01 PM

The cold weather is here, and like most people we are all looking for ideas to get ourselves warmed up. One great way to warm yourself up is to practice yoga at Empower, downtown Appleton.

Practicing yoga is fun and uplifting. The list of benefits that yoga has to offer are endless but a few important ones are; ease of stressful tension, and the reduction of pent up anxiety. (Sounds like a great way to prepare yourself for the stressful holiday season!)

Increasing Our Sense of Wellness in Downtown Appleton

Studio 1There is an increasing sense of wellness in the air in the Fox Cities. Can you feel it? Some organizations have been embracing wellness as an added benefit for their employees for some time now, but with the presence of Well City Fox Cities and Weight of the Fox Valley (just to name a few), more and more people are starting to recognize that it is not just the responsibility of the individual, but of the community and employers to ensure wellness is on the forefront of our minds. More and more people are starting to realize we can’t do this on our own.

Our team at Absolute Wellness has expanded and grown into a new location downtown Appleton to provide a one of a kind service to employers. Downtown Appleton is an amazing hub, being centralized within the Fox Valley, and provides us with the tools to reach as many people as we can!

The employees feel their place of work truly cares about them and their wellbeing.
