PILATES, yoga dance and metafit classes are among the free weekly activities offered by Redland City Council until the end of June.

The activities are offered as part of the Redlands Healthy and Active Program.

More than 300 people per week were involved in activities during the first term of this year.

Mayor Karen Williams said the second term of Healthy and Active would run from April 16 to June 30 and would have more activities and variety.

“I am delighted so many Redlands residents have already taken up the challenge to get up and get active, with over 400 registering for last term’s activities using the flexible Team App,” Cr Williams said.

“But it’s not too late to get involved. Term two is kicking off with many favourites continuing on, in addition to new offerings such as pilates, yoga dance, women’s mountain bike and metafit.

“Once again they’ll be run in Redlands parks, open spaces and outdoor venues, making the most of the beautiful Redlands environment.”

New for kids this term is the Active Pop Ups Program delivered under the Queensland government’s Embracing 2018 Legacy Program for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and funded by the Australian government.

Cr Williams said qualified coaches from Redlands’ local sport and recreation clubs would run the program.

“Children from five to 17 years will be able to choose from 15 different activities – from parkour and soccer through to kayaking yoga – with some being offered as single sessions and other as short courses of up to four weeks,” she said.

“It’s a great chance for youngsters to try their hands at new activities free of charge. No experience is necessary but parents should check they’re able to attend all the required dates before booking.”
