Ballet Body Yoga session was held at the Novotel Wollongong and raised money for victims of domestic violence.

Ballet Body wanted to celebrate its first anniversary by doing something for the community, leading to a fundraiser for Supported Accommodation and Support Services Shoalhaven Illawarra (SAHSSI) Women’s Refuge.

It was held at the Novotel with 110 participants, but it was no typical birthday function. All did the newly developed workout called Ballet Body and in the process helped other women in need.

Around half those present regularly do workouts with Ms Bronneberg, at one of the six locations where she operates, and the rest were friends or people who had heard about the unique fundraiser and wanted to join in.

Participants all got to check out the newly covered deck at the Novotel as they all attempted to raise as much money and awareness as possible for women in crisis. The Mega Ballet Body work-out fundraiser was held in support of SAHSSI Women’s Refuge.

“I wanted to give back to the community and decided SAHSSI Women’s Refuge would be the perfect way for women to support women in need”.

The Novotel provided the space for the event that was also supported by Lorna Jane Wollongong, Aussie Supps, Northbeach Kiosk and Inner Edge Wellness.

“We wanted to highlight the issue of women in crisis and the need to support such a worthwhile community service,’’
