Illawarra Wellness

a holistic approach to achieve good health and wellbeing in mind and body

Who Are We?

IIllawarra Wellness Centre was opened in September 2009 and commenced with classes in Tai Chi, Gentle Exercise and Drumming on Monday only.

Within a year or two, extra classes were added so that we now operate every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday during school terms, at the Coniston Community Hall, 24-26 Bridge Street, Coniston; (adjacent to Coniston Railway station.)

Local buses run regularly and will drop passengers close by.

Term Four 2021

Normally classes would recommence on Tuesday 5 October and run through to Friday 17 December. However, reopening will depend on when Covid restrictions end and our volunteers can receive proper instructions as to what their duties will entail to allow us to return. Once that has been established and council re-instates our usage of the hall, classes will recommence.

As soon as reopening is allowed all members will be informed via email of personal notification.

As we age, a lot of our bits don’t work as well as they used to. At Illawarra Wellness, we strive to maintain those bits that continue to serve us well by using a holistic approach to achieve good health and wellbeing in mind and body.

The OWN Model of Wellness challenges medical discourses in which life events such as loneliness, poverty, grief and stress are frequently defined as health ‘problems’ to be medicated. Through physical activities, community engagement, social interaction and skill development, OWN encourages older women to live positive and supportive lives, despite illness and frailty.

Our philosophy is based on the concept that how we age is influenced not only by physical factors, but also by socio-economic, emotional and social considerations.

Facilitated workshops are regularly featured with a diverse range of topics chosen specifically to enlighten and inspire us to pursue and introduce positivity, joy and wellbeing into our lives.

Our costs are kept as low as possible, so why not try a Wellness Experience?
