MY BLACK HISTORY LIFE
Wellbeats instructor Jan Johnson shares her story.
“A lot of people go to yoga for the physical part of it, but for me it was more of a spiritual connection. I just felt my heart found what I had been praying for or looking for. Something was missing in my life—and that was it.”
At Wellbeats, diversity, equity, and inclusion are core components of our mission. It’s not just a month of the year; it’s a lifestyle. And this includes creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive wellness experience and space for all.
“What I love about what we’re doing at Wellbeats is the approach we’re taking to align our day-to-day work with our overall mission to provide all people the opportunity to live a healthier life,” Jason Von Bank, Wellbeats president and CEO, said. “We’re committed to approaching our workplace with professionalism and respect for each other’s unique and diverse perspectives, backgrounds, characteristics, skills, and life experiences.”
Ours is a global community, and we want to reflect that in all we do. Different ideas, cultures, perspectives, and backgrounds create a stronger and more creative environment that delivers better results. Check back all month long as our Black History Month celebration continues.
We believe fitness, nutrition, and mindfulness are for everyone.
We see you. Your presence and your story matter.
We strive to meet you wherever you are, creating a welcoming space where everyone is included, seen, and heard.
We are committed to continued growth through education, self-reflection, and change.
Who you are is who we are
Representation is the first step—not the end goal. Our goal is to engage all communities, starting with world class instructors from all backgrounds. When we hire our instructors, we are always actively pursuing diversity, talent, and passion.
