Healthy Steps to Freedom is Now Offered at the Clarksville Area YMCA

Restore Ministries of the YMCARestore Ministries of the YMCA is pleased to announce that Healthy Steps to Freedom will now be offered to the Clarksville community. It will meet Tuesdays from 11:30am – 1:30pm at the Clarksville Area YMCA, 260 Hillcrest Drive, starting August 24th.

Healthy Steps to Freedom is designed to help women release the intense burden of being controlled by food and physical appearance. It helps those in the class learn how to deal with life-controlling food issues, no matter what they are — weight loss, eating disorders, food addictions, or body image issues. Healthy Steps to Freedom combines 1 ½ hour of group time with 30 minutes of exercise led by a wellness coach. Healthy Steps group time takes class members to the core of the body image issue and focuses on lasting change, not just another resolution.

Hear from former Healthy Steps to Freedom participants:

  • “Healthy Steps was unbelievable. It motivated me. I feel connected and bonded to all these incredible women.”
  • “Healthy Steps to Freedom has brought me more self-awareness, more insight. It’s validated myself and my emotions. I was given permission to feel whatever was there and I was safe.”
  • “I now have hope and peace for myself. The long, long journey of pain is over.”
  • “I found through Healthy Steps that I am not the only one who feels what I feel. I am not different.  I am human.”

Healthy Steps to Freedom costs $70.00 for YMCA members and $100 for non-members. This cost includes all eight weeks, the Healthy Steps workbook, and a wellness coach. Financial assistance is available. No one is turned away due to inability to pay.
