Prevention and wellness are important in the lives of families.

The Well is Church Health’s prevention and wellness center for children ages 6 weeks old to 12 years old and their families. Our dynamic researched-based and ministry-minded program focuses on the root causes that affect the health and wellness of children and families: physical activity, nutrition, body image, self-esteem, safety education, and violence prevention.

Plan to Get Healthy

We emphasize whole-child health and teach about the connection to body, mind and spirit. Plan to Get Healthy, the cornerstone of our program, is a health coaching program for children where they set goals to either eat better or get moving. A specific plan is created for them in order to motivate them regarding health behavior change.

Arts & Movement

Creativity and the arts are central to the work that we do with children. We also operate the Intergenerational Art Studio connected to our space on the 1st floor, and the Creative Movement Studio on the 2nd floor.

The Church Health YMCA

For the past 17 years, the educators in our program have been planting seeds to grow a healthier community in Memphis by connecting with children and their families about the importance of healthy living. We are excited about our collaboration with the YMCA of Memphis and the Mid-South as we seek to expand our impact on Memphis and its families. Children who are members of the YMCA can attend our program for a two-hour time limit. We are open Monday through Saturday.

Creative Movement Studio

At Church Health, we believe that movement is our birthright. Our bodies are made to move, and through creative, mindful movement and dance, we can achieve a deeper connection to body, mind, and spirit.

The Church Health Creative Movement Studio offers classes for all ages and levels of fitness, including dance, ballet, creative movement, equipment-based Pilates, and specialty yoga.
