We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

The Team from Community News

Hi Auckland,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Feel free and share your stories below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used your local community paper.

FREE! Yoga for Periods Workshop

The team from Auckland Women's Centre

We are pleased to offer everyone this free yoga workshop next weekend! 😍 (Saturday the 29th of May, 10:30am - 11:30am).

Yoga is for all - but menstruating women need to adjust their practice over the month, from one menstruation to the next menstruation. In this class, Julia Vajda de Albuquerque will share a specific asana sequence for the period days. Participants will learn what asanas should be avoided during their period, what asanas may help to relieve cramps and abdominal pains, and how to establish a monthly practice to get rid of mood swings of the body and mind and maintain a hormonal balance, as thought by Dr Geeta S. Iyengar.

Email info@womenz.org.nz to register. We have a limited supply of yoga mats that can be used for free at the centre 😊
