Healthy People Live in Healthy Communities
Canyon Ranch Institute’s programs honor cultural diversity and are tailored to the people who live in the communities with whom we have the privilege to collaborate. Canyon Ranch Institute creates partnerships by identifying and joining with evidence-based, innovative best-practice organizations and programs globally.At the beginning of each program, Canyon Ranch Institute and our partners work with community members to assess local needs and resources, as well as conduct focus groups and other activities to develop a participatory planning process. Through our interaction with community members, Canyon Ranch Institute can identify barriers to and motivators for optimal health.
Individual Transformation Leads to Sustainability
Canyon Ranch Institute and our partners encourage community members and future participants to become involved in the program process early on, increasing the likelihood that participants will make a personal and long-lasting commitment to health and wellness. Participants can then become “health and wellness ambassadors” in their own community and encourage their family and friends to transform their fundamental approach to health.
