Term 2 2020 at Yarrunga

What's happening at Yarrunga Community Centre?

Do you live in Croydon Hills, Croydon, Warranwood, Ringwood, Mooroolbark or Chirnside Park and are looking for a range of health and wellbeing, art and craft, social groups or educational programs?

We have a number of health and wellbeing classes including yoga, tai chi, pilates, strength training for seniors and interval training. We also have cooking, social groups, on-line training and more.

What's extra exciting in term 2?

 If you're interested in coffee making, we have a Barista taster course. If you want to take your coffee making skills further you can enrol in a longer Barista course, and if you already have Barista skills that need brushing up, try our personal Barista training sessions.   

If you're more interested in art/craft we have a new multi-media art and craft class that will teach skills in a range of different mediums. 

If you're interested in health and wellbeing we have beginner courses in Tai Chi and Pilates and a new yoga class on Saturday mornings. 

Our 2020 Term 2 Short Course and Activity Guide is available now to download.
