Katrina Lee is a local woman who started The Village Catch-Ups.
This was an initiative she began last year based on the knowledge and experience of the impact of isolation on mental health, the benefits of community, connection and being physically active as well as from a desire to help small ‘active lifestyle based' businesses.
The Village Catch-Ups focuses on making it easy for individuals or friend groups to all come together and socialise again, have the opportunity to meet new people, stretch their comfort zones, enjoy themselves and participate in physical activity that they may have been hesitant to do alone.
Also, this was an opportunity for small businesses to showcase the kind of activities they have on offer that group participants can choose to attend on a more regular basis.
The activities have ranged from once off sessions or a small 4 week offer.
The activities organised so far have been
· Flying Trapeze
· Aerial Silks, Lyra and Burlesque Dance Class
· Reformer Pilates and Yoga,
· Bollywood Dancing
· And just recently the No Lights No Lycra Mildura event.
The aim is for 1-2 activities a month and there is no commitment required.
It has currently been running by Katrina who has been contacting businesses to see if they would be interested. But Katrina is also keen for businesses to contact her.
The Village Catch Ups are free of charge.
