Welcome to our NEW Health Matters Program!

Health Matters is a mind and body wellness program developed by AHM’s Leadership, Mental Health and Prevention Teams; funded by a Grant from the Cigna Foundation. This program is now welcoming residents of all ages outside our Andover, Columbia, Hebron, and Marlborough communities during the weeks of October 5th through October 26th. This special exception to welcome our neighboring communities, is being made during the pandemic to help provide wellness programs for fellow Connecticut residents.

The Health Matters Program has three phases of programming – each with a different focus:

  • Phase 1 (Sessions 1 & 2) focuses on the Self
  • Phase 2 focuses on the Family
  • Phase 3 focuses on the Community

For only $25 you will have access to the Health Matters Phase 1, Session 2 Calendar filled with activities that will calm your body & mind and will allow you to add more movement into your routine. Activities include Yoga Flow for All, Chair Yoga, Introduction to Tai Chi (Meditative Movement), Storytime Yoga, Zentangle Drawing, and Zumba Fitness®.

Three workshops are planned: Love Your Face Therapy (LYFT) Workshop and two Mindfulness & Meditation Workshops; one for yourself and one for the entire family to participate in together.  Everyone who registers can participate in as many or as few activities as they choose!  Health Matters PHASE One: the Self (Session 2) runs the entire month of October for four weeks.

We are offering all activities via Zoom, but AHM will continue to reassess and take guidance from the Chatham Health Department and the State of CT. Our overall goal is for you and your family to become inspired by these activities so you will want to continue after the sessions are over. AHM will provide you with nearby resources to help you continue improving your health and wellness!

Check back soon to learn more about our “Pop-up Seasonal Health Matters Workshops”! Information on Health Matters Phase 2 & 3 coming soon!
