Living Healthy With Arthritis


The University of Arizona Arthritis Center is proud to partner with Canyon Ranch Health Resort to present the Canyon Ranch/Living Healthy With Arthritis Active Program each year.  All classes are taught by nationally-certified fitness and movement professionals from the world-renown Canyon Ranch Health Resort in Tucson. 

Classes are specifically designed to help those suffering from arthritis find new avenues to health and wellness through movement.  Classes are limited in size to maximize participant benefit and all classes offer modifications and special assistance to those in need.  All sessions are currently being presented via livestream and are held from 10 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.  Classes are held September-November and February-May.  For more information, please email

We hope you will join us on the path to wellness and enjoy the benefits of the UA Arthritis Center's Canyon Ranch Active Series!
