To celebrate International Day of People with Disability, Glen Eira Leisure is hosting a free virtual Activities Day on Thursday 3 December.

International Day of People with Disability is part of a worldwide celebration that occurs on 3 December every year. The day brings together individuals, businesses, community organisations and governments to celebrate and acknowledge the contributions, skills and achievements of people with a disability.

The following sessions will be live streamed from 10am to 1pm via facebook.com/GESAConline

The sessions suit all abilities and you can join in from the comfort of your lounge room.

Fast and Furious: 10am–10.30am

Wheelie Fit: 10.30am–11am
If you use a self-propelled wheelchair, this class is for you. It will develop your cardiovascular fitness, upper limb strength and co-ordination while working on your wheelchair skills and agility.

Mindfulness: 11am–11.30am
An introduction into the benefits of mindfulness —the practice of grounding your awareness in the present moment. Mindfulness is a useful practice for reducing stress and anxiety.
