70 health and fitness courses

SERIES of workshops promoting health and fitness will be held islandwide to encourage 'wellness for everyone'.
Organised by People's Association and key players in the health and wellness industry, some 70 workshops will be held around Singapore from this month till January.
They will focus on three 'wellness pillars', namely eating healthy, being active and thinking positive which aims to help one achieve a better quality of life through various dimensions of wellness.
The key players that will be involved include the Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Singapore (OGSS), National Parks Board (NParks) and Health Promotion Board (HPB).
Such workshops and courses offer participants opportunities to make more friends while keeping oneself in tiptop shape, both physically and mentally, said PA.
It added that participants could enjoy tremendous improvement to their quality of life with the positive effects of friendships built through the courses.
Mental wellness is advocated through workshops on intellectually-stimulating games such as Sudoku, Contract Bridge, Mahjong, Scrabble and Weiqi to help keep one's mind agile.
There is also a Gardening workshop organised by the PA and NParks for the therapeutic pleasures.
Apart from attaining mental well-being, staying physically active also becomes much easier with several exciting options such as the Walking Meditation classes for the multi-tasking professionals or Kangoo Jumps Clinic, using Swiss-engineered Kangoo shoes, for low-impact and fun workouts.
There are also breakfast workshops on organic bread including naan and Tibetan bread to encourage healthy eating.
The PA will also launch Supermarket Tours to teach the public how to read food labels and make healthy choices whilst shopping.
Dr Fatimah Lateef, Adviser to Marine Parade GRC Grassroots Organisations, will launch the Women's Health Series at Sheraton Hotel on Saturday to kick off the series.
