United for celebrations

SUSTAINING your environment, yourself, your spirit and your relationships is the theme for this year's International Women's Day celebrations hosted by the Gympie and District Women's Health Centre.

Women are invited to Memorial Park from 10am-2pm next Thursday for a day of singing, dancing and nurturing.

Yoga in the park starts at 10am, with women invited to join Lesley Edwards for an hour of stretching and strengthening mind, body and soul.

At 11m, Elli Webb will talk about sustaining the environment, with simple tips on how to recycle and reuse.

Sustaining souls will be Jody Knight, leading a singing workshop from 11.30am, followed at 12.30pm by Fiona Herrington and Anna Coats, counsellors at Women's Health, talking about sustaining healthy relationships.

The day finishes with the talented Cathy Howe of Quintessence Bellydance, as she leads a belly dance workshop suitable for women of all ages and experience from 1-2pm.

Throughout the day, women are invited to attend the healing tent and be nurtured by natural therapies such as hand massages and Reiki.

Raffles, face painting and hula-hooping will also be on the program.

Bookings are not being taken - just come along on the day.

There is no fee, but donations are welcome and encouraged.
