Our Practice is Our Promise

Whole beings are well beings

To be whole, people need a framework that accounts for the spirit, mind, and body, including a sense of belonging. And nobody has more experience bringing spirit, mind, and body together in the community than the YMCA. It's been our 'thing' since 1844.

Nourish graphic


Feed your whole self

We nourish our bodies with the food we eat and how we use it.

We nourish our minds through learning, contemplation, and rest.

And we nourish our spirits through the community we keep, the rituals we embrace, and the customs we share.

Move graphic


Get up to get down

Some move for fitness. Some move for function. And some move to stay active, engaged, and connected to others.

No matter the motivation to move, an old expression holds true (especially as we age): move it or lose it.

Reflect graphic


Be quiet, be still, and just be

Busy days and busy lives make for busy minds. And busy minds can make bodies anxious, minds race, and spirits dim.

So, we seek ways to quiet the world around us, center ourselves, and sit in quiet repose.


Connect graphic


Bring 'unity' to your community

As much as we are individuals, we are communal creatures. Our experiences and interactions with others allow us to give, take, and share energy as a fundamental part of our humanity.

Rest, relax, and renew

To rejuvenate our whole selves, "rest and relaxation" is only part of the equation.

Experiences that include touch, sound, and energy healing can also reinvigorate our spirits, minds, and bodies.
