The Wellness Studio at UW Health at The American Center

During this 8-week course, you will team up with our professional chef, dietitian, exercise specialist and health psychologist to gain practical skills to cook and move your way to greater health and well-being.  Qigong with Dianné Jean Aldrich offered on July 20th as part of this interactive series previously known as THRIVE.

Held in The Wellness Studio, QiGong is an integrated mind/body health system that has been practiced for thousands of years to cultivate a balanced, calm, healthy state of being. Easy to learn and easy to do, QiGong enhances respiration, balance, range-of-motion, endurance, lymphatic flow and overall health. Come practice simple stretching, breathing, visualization and self-massage exercises that promote beneficial body alignment, fluid movement, and full-body energy flow.

Take this opportunity to improve your core strength, flexibility and postural awareness through Pilates in The Wellness Studio. We start with the fundamentals of Pilates mat work and learn the basic series of exercises upon which the entire Pilates method is built. Learn to coordinate breath with movement and add grace and ease to your body and mind. The heavy emphasis on core strength will support your back as well, benefiting every aspect of your exercise routine.

The Wellness Studio at UW Health at The American Center offers a wide range of movement classes that promote a holistic approach to health and well-being.


We support people in an active process of becoming aware of and making choices that contribute to a happy, healthy and fulfilling life through mindful movement and exercise classes.
