shop | learn | move
MISSION: Our mission at The Family Wellness Market is to provide a space where families can come together to shop, learn and move together. Shop at the variety of local vendors offering products and services for the whole family, learn in one of our classes or at a demonstration, and move in one of our fitness classes. Our belief is that wellness is more than just food and nutrition – wellness also encompasses social, mental, physical, environmental and spiritual health.
LOCATION : The Family Wellness Market will be held at The Armoury in downtown Aurora and will feature 30 vendors. We are proud to offer free admission for all attendees, and our goal is to welcome at least 600 people through our door! Our target audience is families with children who live at home, from infants to teenagers. We will be offering workshops for a fee, family yoga (for donation to a local charity) and live demos of products. Please join us as a sponsor!
COVID-19 UPDATE: We will be following public health safety regulations and will be allowing 50 people at a time inside the venue.

Ashley and Tanya have been friends for the last 23 years! They met when they were placed on the same soccer team when they were 14 years old. Their friendship developed over the years and although they went to different high schools and universities, they maintained a close bond. They had many adventures together, including some secret ones!!!
Ashley is a high school science teacher, with a love of all things plant related! She loves to garden, both vegetables and flowers, and uses her flowers and herbs in her own DIY recipes. Her love of plants led her to essential oils, and now she is a Young Living Essential Oil Independent Distributor. She is passionate about teaching people how they can make their own custom products using essential oils. In addition, she is a newly certified Aroma Freedom Technique practitioner and is looking forward to helping even more people with this simple yet effective technique.
