Center for Arts and Wellness - Grand Opening and OPEN HOUSE
(Sunday November 6, 3:30-6:30)

Two local teachers each specializing in a different art form in the Metrowest area came together with a unique vision to offer the diaspora a myriad of avenues for artistic expression and healing.  The Center for Arts and Wellness was founded to seamlessly blend art, culture and well-being for the enrichment of the community.  The founders, Hema Iyengar and Vandana Rao, teachers of Bharatanatyam and Hindustani Classical Music, have been serving our community for many years and have come together to present this unique fusion of Art and Wellness.

In early October they opened the doors to a new Center – the Center for Arts and Wellness – in Westborough.  This conveniently located Center on Route 9 is easy to get to and has ample parking.  The Center offers over 2700 square feet of space, with multiple rooms of various sizes on two floors.  The space can also be rented for events such as workshops, mini concerts and baithaks, arts and wellness classes by visiting professionals, for parties and other events.

The Center brings together over 15 expert teachers with different proficiencies to create a unique opportunity for artistic learning and exchange.  It offers more than a dozen different types of classes and services for kids and adults alike in both Art and Wellness.  The Center has a deep commitment to providing a nurturing environment for children to learn and appreciate traditional classical art forms, widen their horizons in arts and explore their individual creativity.

As part of the Arts track, there are dance lessons in Bharatanatyam, Bollywood Fusion and Belly dancing, music lessons in Hindustani vocal, Carnatic vocal, harmonium, guitar, and flute, and in the creative arts it features lessons in art and mehndi.  On the Wellness track the Center offers fitness classes such as Zumba and BollyAerobics, Yoga and Tai Chi, and wellness classes such as Reiki, Ayurvedic massage, Ayurvedic facials, and Shirodhara.  The practitioners are licensed and certified, well trained professionals and artists who have come together under a single umbrella.

The Center for Arts and Wellness is hosting its first Open House on Sunday November 6, from 3:30-6:30 pm.  Visit the Center to learn more about their programs, see their space, and interact and engage with the practitioners.  The Open House will feature active demonstrations and one-on-one sessions by the practitioners on dance, music and wellness.  An attendee can also get short Ayurvedic massages by their Ayurvedic specialist.  Potential students can experience and learn details before committing to a class.

The Center is located at 125 Turnpike Road, Westborough, MA 01581.  For more details about the Center and to learn about the Open House, visit their website at www.centerforartsandwellness.com and their facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Center-for-Arts-and-Wellness-526974770821460/.
