We are inviting women to get active again during THIS GIRL CAN WEEK

Come along and get active at our free Yin Yoga class at Panton Hill Neighbourhood House, Saturday 17 September as part of VicHealth’s This Girl Can Week held during 12-18 September 2022.

The class will be fun, non-judgemental and suited to women and girls who want to get active again or try something new. 

This Girl Can Week is part of the This Girl Can – Victoria campaign, which encourages all women, to get active in their own way, on their own terms.

Allira Haeusler, Panton Hill Neighbourhood House Coordinator said the event will be beginner-friendly and welcoming, helping women make that first step.

“We want women to feel comfortable getting active with us, no matter what they look like, their fitness level, or how sweaty they are after a workout,” Allira said.

“We think they’re amazing for giving it a go and trying something new, and we’re here to support, encourage and motivate women, without judgement.

“Ensuring that all women feel safe and empowered to be active is always important to us, especially during This Girl Can Week.”

VicHealth’s Head of This Girl Can – Victoria, Rebecca Ahern said This Girl Can Week is about creating more opportunities for women be active in their local community, no matter their age, background, or abilities.

“This Girl Can – Victoria is all about celebrating what women can do, whether that’s a walk around the block or a few laps of the pool,” Ms Ahern said.

“This Girl Can Week is here to support women to get back into exercise and enjoy the feeling of moving their body again – whether it’s the connection of being part of a team, the peace found through yoga or the freedom of going for a run or ride.

“There’s no judgement if you haven’t exercised in a while, all that matters is that you give it a go.”
