Community Partner Award Winner
VivAsia’s vision is to inspire, educate, connect, and empower people to embrace cultural diversity through community building, health and wellness programs, human kindness and caring. They provide culturally inspired fitness and wellness programs for underserved communities and individuals of all fitness levels and ages. VivAsia Fitness was created from the desire to explore the Asian culture through the medium of aerobic dance.
Founder, Ying Mitchell, focused her graduate research project on the effect of a culturally inspired aerobic dance program on the functional fitness and perceived health of older adults. The programs that were the result of her studies were the Lotus program and the Senior Functional Assessment program. Both of which we share with several Eden Housing locations.
VivAsia has partnered with Eden Housing since 2019 by bringing fitness and wellness program to our senior sites. Their Lotus and Senior Functional Assessment programs help our seniors measure their fitness for the short and long term. Thank you, VivAsia Fitness, for encouraging individuals to live healthy and active lifestyles!
