What we're about

Greetings, Valeria here and welcome to the Fit for Joy Bay Harbor Islands Fitness and Spirituality Meet Up page!

As I’ve always said “To be healthy is to be loving!” and before you sign up for this Meet Up, I have a couple of questions for you.

What is your main reason to exercise?

What gives true meaning to your life?

How can we integrate conventional fitness with spirituality?

The Fit for Joy vision challenges us to embody the "true" meaning of health in all areas of our lives.

It's about body-mind-spirit awareness and practice.

It's about kindness.

It's about having a meaningful purpose.

The gatherings are designed to nurture your body through exercise and diet education, cultivate mindfulness through meditation, to motivate and inspire you to listen to your own heart.

We come together to practice the art of living a happier, kinder and healthier life.

Fit for Joy is about being true to our hearts to create inner and outer peace.
