APAA organises Healthy Living Workshop

Following on from the success of last year’s event, the Association for the Protection of Animals in the Algarve (APAA) will be holding another Healthy Living Workshop at the Vila Rosa Resort in Praia da Rocha on Wednesday, 21 February, at 11am.

This year’s event, under the theme “Moving Beyond Age”, is a “fun and interactive” workshop where you can learn simple strategies to safely maintain the quality of your movement, regardless of your age.

The workshop will be presented by Joel Fernandes, a physical therapist and personal trainer, who merges the knowledge of the world of rehabilitation with the knowledge of the training field.

Organisers said: “You will go back in time, to your first year of life, and you will relearn some basic body positions and movement patterns that were keystones in the development of your motor control.

“With simple progressions within a single exercise, you will be able to improve your balance, mobility, stability, coordination, cardio, strength, body awareness … well, your movement as a whole.”

Cost per person is €20, including refreshments on arrival and a healthy buffet lunch at the end of the workshop.
