MIAMI, OK.--- Myaamia Wellness Center is for Native Americans and non-Indian clients of all ages. The center offers aquatic classes, a heated pool, and cardio machines. Classes are also offered to help fight diabetes, arthritis, and health issues. Wellness staff say the aquatic pool has really helped the elderly. 

"There's been many people that have been able to cut their amount of medicine that they take everyday. And their pain level has gone down," said Laurie Shade, Community Services Director.

The wellness center is free to Native Americans and their spouses, otherwise it's $10 a month.
