GRACEFUL AGING WELLNESS CENTER

Graceful Aging Wellness Center (GAWC) is more than just a fitness and wellness center. We’re a community anchor located in one of the world’s top nature destinations that brings people 40+ together to celebrate all stages of aging.  We’re a gathering place that offers wellness in all areas, from fostering community and new friendships, to helping our members nurture their spiritual and mindfulness journeys. A division of Bethlen Communities, we believe in integrating the International Council of Active Aging’s Seven Dimensions of Wellness and support our members in discovering their sovereignty in living an optimal, fulfilling life. 


GAWC gives members dynamic and unique classes to support the Seven Dimensions of Wellness: social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, occupational, intellectual, and physical. 

“Wellness is derived from our ability to understand, accept and act upon our capacity to lead a purpose-filled and engaged life.
In doing so, we can embrace our  potential to pursue  and optimize life’s possibilities.” 

-- International Council on Active Aging
