On Thursday the 17th of June, the Antiochian Welfare Association (AWA) held its first Strength and exercise class at the Antiochian Youth Centre, Punchbowl. Parishioners from Antiochian churches all around Sydney enjoyed the 60-minute exercise session with an experienced fitness instructor, Petra Will-Herat.

The session involved a range of warm-up exercises, stretches, breathing, and more! Everyone enjoyed a chat and some healthy snacks which left them feeling energised for the day ahead.

AWA will be hosting another strength and relaxation class next Wednesday the 23rd of June at 10.30 am. The session will again be held at the Antiochian Youth Centre – please encourage your family and friends to attend!

Address for Antiochian Youth Centre: 8 Henry St, Punchbowl NSW 2196.

The session was funded by a Multicultural NSW grant.
