A Healthy Living for Teens Workshop will be held on Saturday, August 8 at Avoca Beach Surf Life Saving Club.
The workshop will be run by self-help author and meditation educator, Ms Alison Nancye and Avoca Beach yoga teacher and health coach, Ms Carrera Jones. The two health advocates have teamed up to give local teenagers advice on healthy life practices that will assist them now and in the future.
The workshop will give teenagers an opportunity to learn yoga routines, meditation and mindfulness exercises as well as nutritious eating habits and healthy life choices that can be practiced at home, school or in everyday life.
Ms Nancye is a mother of two and has learned from personal experience the value of these life skills for supporting young people to succeed at school and manage life problems such as bullying.
She has been teaching meditation and mindfulness techniques on the Coast for 20 years now and said she was motivated by how much teenagers can benefit from the support. She is also releasing her Meditation for Teens Album.
Ms Carrera Jones said she was equally as passionate about health advocacy as she has left a fast-paced corporate career to become a yoga instructor and health coach in order to inspire others to lead a healthy lifestyle.
“There are so many teenagers who are seriously stressed and need our support,” Ms Jones said.
