Healthy New Albany offers a wide variety of classes, community programs, and events – all about enjoying life while improving health! Our programs are open to everyone (no residency or membership restrictions).

Some of our programs are one-time events and some are a series of classes on a specific day and time for a set number of weeks. Rest assured we are taking all necessary health and safety precautions including adequate social distance in each program or event. Many of our offerings take place outdoors, while others take place in our spaces at the Philip Heit Center or at a beautiful property on Avis Rd.
