A safe space for the women of Wagga to socialise and get involved with the community has been available for almost a year now, yet many do not know it exists.
The Women's Health Centre runs tri-weekly workshops involving everything from music and art to health and well-being.
The centre's Health Promotion Worker, Claire Kendall, said there is a wealth of benefits in the programs.
"There's a range of benefits from these workshops, including self care by doing something purely for your own enjoyment, there's benefit in learning a new skill or honing a skill, then there's meeting new friends, breaking down social barriers and reducing isolation," she said.
Classes run on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays for a few hours.
"Our normal programs involve a class Tuesday afternoons focusing on women's wellness and well-being, which is a mixture of nutrition, gut health, healthy eating, movement like yoga and stretching, that sort of thing, and all the groups are very accessible so the yoga for instance is for all levels no matter your flexibility or mobility," Ms Kendall said.
"We also have ukulele classes on Saturday afternoons, and women can either bring their own or borrow one of our instruments, so we have a teacher that comes and it's a bit of fun but also allows them to develop a new skill or work on one they already have.
"Sundays we have a morning class called Sunday at the Centre which is a mix of gardening, art and craft depending on what the women want to do."
There is no cost to participate in the groups, and all equipment and resources are supplied so women can simply turn up and get involved.
Ms Kendall said the classes are designed to provide a safe social place for women without the pressure to attend.
"They've become a part of our general suite of services, and we have some people who do come regularly but also those who come as a one off - there's no lock-in commitment or judgement on how often or little you turn up," she said.
"The numbers in attendance go up and down but generally have increased since the program started which is great to see."
The Women's Health Centre is also planning to run a four-week workshop of Sunday classes in the near future which will focus on sustainability in the home and reducing the environmental footprint left behind from day-to-day living.
