Welcome to our website! My name is Virginia Gingras, founder of Thriving Through ACTION, a wellness business that helps individuals reach their full potential.

DSC01774At Thriving Through ACTION, we believe that proper physical and mental wellness allows you to reach any goal you set for yourself. Physical and mental health programs include spin, yoga, trail running and upper body sculpt classes as well as Positive Mental Health presentations, youth workshops and adult wellness retreats. All of these have the same goal: getting your mind and body into shape. 




Thriving Through ACTION is very excited to announce a brand new Commercial Hot/Warm Yoga Studio and Wellness Centre will be opening at the intersection of Horseshoe Valley Road and Line 4 across from the park in Fall 20019. Stay tuned for more details of this new addition to Horseshoe Valley.

With over 15 years of experience as a veteran athlete, fitness instructor, high school teacher and motivational speaker,  I strongly believe I have the background and expertise that enables me to ensure my clients’ goals are reached and their sweat-filled, stress-relieving adventures are nothing but FUN. This, coupled with my Yoga Alliance 200hr Certification and experience as a School Principal, makes me a well rounded wellness leader. My main goal is to ensure you learn how to enjoy exercise (as it is a gift), thrive by sweating out stress with others, utilize the great outdoors and reconnect with your goals to become a better you. This will help you move your life from “surviving” into “THRIVING”.

Positive mental health is key to ensuring a fruitful life. Having suffered from an eating disorder and depression in the past, I know all too well how important it is to ensure our positive mental health gets the attention it deserves.

SO – browse through my website and learn a bit about what I have to offer. I lead by example (check out the Virginia vs Bruce adventure tab) and practice what I preach.  I do not believe in “instructing” but rather working together, joining your journey towards living a life of consistent “thriving”.

I promise not to disappoint!
