This Saturday, Southwest Institute of Healing Arts is holding a celebration of Mind, Body and Spirit on the greenbelt next our campuses. This will be the twenty-third year that SWIHA has hosted the Holistic Health Gathering, and will also mark one year at our main campus’ new location! There is no charge to attend and this event is open to the public.

The Holistic Health Gathering will kick off with Yoga On the Green Belt at 9am, led by Will Zecco. Additionally, studio classes at Spirit of Yoga will be complimentary all day!
