South Orange’s Wellness Lounge offers a host of healthy living classes and workshops for adults and children. Left, the activity room is used for hands-on projects and roundtable discussions.
A Step Further, the Wellness Lounge in South Orange’s five-week summer enrichment program for children and teens, takes day camp to a new level. Designed to bolster self esteem and self awareness, the creative offerings include: fashioning a personal blueprint to help evaluate college options; creating a comic book in which participants star as their own superheroes; and learning techniques such as visualization, meditation and relaxation.
The Wellness Lounge (14 South Orange Avenue; 973-275-3868), which opened last November, has an ongoing roster of seminars and workshops that promote healthy lifestyles. Treatments and workshops, presented by independent practitioners, range from reflexology and life coaching to feng shui, financial wellness and nutrition. The lounge’s educational programming promotes sustainability and green living practices. The retail store, located within the center, sells gifts, apparel and Something Healthy, the Lounge’s brand of eco-friendly products.
