UMass offers wellness programs aimed at Spanish-speaking community

A new program is underway as part of the University of Massachusetts Amherst campus-community initiative to reach Spanish-speaking residents in Hampden and Hampshire counties and beyond.

Salud y Bienestar en Pioneer Valley (Health and Wellness in the Pioneer Valley) was launched as part of the UMass initiative entitled Así Hablamos. The main goals of this program are to increase the use of Spanish in institutional and public spaces, and ensure availability of local activities, offered entirely in Spanish, for the individual and collective health and well-being.

Live virtual sessions (via Zoom) are offered by local members of communities in Amherst, Northampton, Holyoke, Springfield, and communities further away. Lessons offered in Spanish include yoga, self-defense and cardio-based activities, Zumba (a program of fitness and choreography), reading and meditation, drawing & reflection,and cultural and personal reflection.

More information in Spanish is available at the website https://blogs.umass.edu/bienestar/.
