Community Programs

 

Community members can participate in a host of programs and activities designed to engage their minds, bodies, and spirits. It is a safe and supportive space where individuals can care for themselves beyond their physical well-being.  Class topics are diverse, ranging from yoga and meditation to financial literacy, and nutrition. We see wellness as broad and holistic, rather than just a chance to flex!  Whether you like to lift weights, learn new things, or participate in group activities or group classes, the Wellness Center has something for you!  We don’t make assumptions about your identity or abilities.  We want to be part of creating a world where LGBTQ+ people can feel strong in their bodies, whatever those bodies look like.

Tuesdays at 5:30 pm & Thursdays at 6:00 pm every week.

Join us twice a week for an hour-long LGBT-inclusive yoga session led by Janus Stroh in the Wellness Center at our Cameron St. location. Janus is Trained in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, Hatha Yoga, and Yin Yoga and incorporates one or more of these styles into each lesson. Mats, Blocks, and yoga blankets are available on-site but feel free to bring your own. A short, guided meditation follows most sessions. All bodies are welcome. This program is donation only/pay what you can (suggested donation $10).


Resilient Roots Trans & Non binary Group

1st & 3rd Tuesdays of Each Month starting at 7:00 pm

Our namesake, the Alder Tree, can thrive in adverse conditions and blooms with both male and female flowers. Resilient Roots is a group exclusively for transgender, gender-nonconforming, non-binary individuals and those questioning their gender identity. Join us twice a month for a group discussion, activities or crafts, and free food or snacks. This group is hybrid, meaning you can attend in person or online via Zoom. E-mail info@alderhealth.org to be added to the group updates/Zoom invite list.



We want to hear from you. Please submit any questions, suggestions, or general feedback in the space below. We'll get back to you as soon as we can. Thank you.
