Get outdoors this spring to walk, swing or stretch your way to better health.

We all know that time spent in the great outdoors is good for our physical and mental wellbeing.

And there are even greater health benefits when the positive impacts of nature are combined with physical exercise.

Spring into Summer, currently in its fifth year, is returning this November with a huge range of free health and wellbeing programs across Maribyrnong.

The majority of programs will be delivered outdoors in local open spaces, and are designed to showcase a range of the facilities and activities on offer across our city.

Yoga teacher Amelia will be running hour-long Yoga in the Park sessions in Yarraville, which she said were extremely popular last year, attracting everyone from beginners to intermediates and beyond.

“I saw people from the beginning of classes in November reaching new levels of awareness and strength by the time classes finished. That was really beautiful.”

Other programs taking place during the series include Pilates, Qigong, Swing Fit, Deep Water Aqua, Mindfulness and much, much more.

As an added bonus to encourage participants to keep active, everyone who registers will receive a free 10 visit pass to both the Maribyrnong Aquatic Centre and RecWest Footscray.

The series is delivered through Council’s Active Maribyrnong initiative, designed to improve the health and wellbeing of our community through physical activity and community participation.

Since the beginning of the Active Maribyrnong program in 2014, over 16,000 community members have enjoyed the benefits of keeping active by participating in our range of events.

Registration for Spring into Summer is essential, so start planning your wellbeing journey and join the long list of active participants who have adopted a healthier lifestyle.

Registrations are now open.
