Chef Paul Smith was the host of an 'Adult Healthy Eating' class in the Ecology Centre, Wicklow town.
Paul of the Mystic Celt restaurant offered plenty of advice on healthy eating, including tips for those who eat organic or gluten free foods. Peter O'Reilly co-hosted the event.
Not only did everyone in attendance get to taste all the food made on the night, they also got to take some home with them to share with the rest of the family.
Padraig O'Morain shared his techniques to reduce daily stress at the Grand Hotel. Mr. O'Morain works as a counsellor training course at the Institute of Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy in Tallaght, Dublin. He has written a number of books including 'Light Mind – Mindfulness in Daily Living and Like A Man – a Guide to Men's Emotional Wellbeing.'
Wicklow Tennis Club will run a series of FREE Cardio Tennis classes as part of the Healthy Town campaign.
The classes take place on Wednesday October 9 and are open to the general public and club members.
Cardio Tennis is a high energy and fun workout suitable for players of all abilities. The classes are work-out rather than coaching based and offer a more entertaining way of keeping fit than going to the gym and using a treadmill.
Coach John Brady will run the classes from 6.30 p.m. to 7 p.m., 7.10 p.m. to 7.40 p.m., 7.50 p.m. to 8.20 p.m. and 8.30 p.m. to 9 p.m.. Participants are requested to wear appropriate footwear and bring a racket, if they have one.
You can register either by texting John on (086) 2596965 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
