Cessnock Library will host a free Seniors Health Workshop on Tuesday 17 October encouraging local seniors to stay active and live their best life during retirement.

This fun and informative workshop will offer practical tips and positive strategies on how to:  

improve strength, flexibility and mobility

improve your balance

remain mentally active

stay healthy and have fun!  

The workshop facilitator will be Taylor Harrison from Active Seniors who is a man on mission to inspire audiences to make positive changes and enjoy their golden years.    

A health practitioner with multiple degrees, author, speaker and philanthropist, Taylor began this journey after a family friend had a fall and passed away shortly after. Inspired further by his own grandfather, who began exercising at 76 and achieved amazing results, he set up some Australia’s first exercise centres specifically for over 60’s.  

Over the past 11 years, Taylor has helped over 3,000 seniors achieve greater health through staying active and is now taking this goal Australia wide. He has written a book on the topic of staying healthy in retirement, with all profits from the book being donated to Alzheimer’s research and it will be available for purchase on the day for $20.

Taylor has now partnered with NSW Seniors Card to launch an Active Seniors initiative, helping every Aussie over 60 to exercise, starting with those in NSW.  

Library Services Coordinator, Rose-marie Walters said, “The main message of the workshop is the key to good health in later years is remaining physically active and engaged in the community and I extend a warm invitation for everyone interested to attend.”  

This Active Seniors Workshop will be held at Cessnock Library on Tuesday 17 October from 10 to 11am and light refreshments will be provided.  

It’s free to come along, but bookings are essential.  Reserve your spot today by calling 02 9984 8883 or visiting www.activeseniors.net.au/workshops.
