Who can join the walk or Pilates in the Park


This group walks for respectful relationships and says No to Domestic Violence. The walk and pilates in the park offers victims, survivors, family and friends a group to connect with and to join in a free form of physical activity in a safe and supportive environment. A range of people attend the walks, which creates a great support network.

Benefits


Outdoor walking  and exercise groups have wide-ranging health benefits including reducing blood pressure, body fat, total cholesterol and risk of depression. The group while walking undertakes the practice of gratitude, being grateful for their surroundings and with their buddy they recount three things they are grateful for or focus on ‘What-Went-Well’ during the week. This exercise is also known as the ‘Three Blessings’. Being grateful and practising gratitude helps to increase happiness and reduce depression. Walking with a group also reduces social isolation and increases feelings of connectedness.
