Fitness has become a trend in Paris. Everywhere you look in and around the French capital, people are joining running clubs, exercising outdoors and at health clubs, and flocking to the Bois de Boulogne on the weekends... all in an effort to get fit. In this city known more for its gourmand restaurant-goers and tennis players, Parisians are now running marathons and discovering Pilates at a record pace.
In this context, the American School of Paris launched the ASP Wellness Program for our international community in 2015. Organized through the Extension Program and offered to ASP parents, faculty, and staff, the Wellness Program includes a full complement of workshops and activities to reduce stress and stimulate the mind and body. As an added benefit, Wellness Program courses are offered alternately in French and in English, providing opportunities for language immersion and bolstering linguistic and cultural confidence.
With passionate and knowledgeable instructors from within our own ASP community, Wellness Program activities are diverse enough to appeal to our wide body of members. A sampling of the rich list of activities includes:
- Yoga (in English)
- Cross-training Fitness (in English)
- Meditation (in French)
- Weight-bearing Fitness (in English and French)
- Tennis / Golf (in French)
- French Cuisine Cooking (in French)
- Pilates (in English and French)
- ASP’s Book Club (in English)
Contact the Extension Program at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Current ASP community members can visit the ASP Portal for important health screening resources, educational links and videos, and helpful numbers to exercise facilities in the Paris region.
We are looking forward to another year becoming fit together!
