Yoga is not only safe for older learners, but also effective in keeping the mind and body in good health. Yoga provides a wonderful social connection with others!

Insight World Wide

Partnering with Insight Worldwide gives Compass communities an opportunity to hire, train and retain the very best employees. Candidates are asked to take one of Insight Worldwide's pre-employment surveys. This allows both the employee and the employer to gain a better understanding of whether this is the right position, and company, for them. Through this simple process, turnover is reduced, employee morale is raised, and our teams are stronger.

All of our programs are aligned with our true north values - goodness, loyalty, faith, and fun! We believe in connecting with one another across generations and geographies to learn, engage in life together, and grow. These programs are aimed at enhancing the total well-being of all elders and preserving their legacies for generations to come.
