Health philosophies that go beyond physical wellness.

Espanola, New Mexico, 7/16/2012 – The local Curves branch goes beyond their physical wellness for women mission to support victims and survivors of domestic violence in living healthy life styles.  Their goal is to partner up with the Crisis Center of Northern New Mexico (CCNNM) to heal women who have suffered abuse in their lives.

Such a partnership came about through the idea that women’s health goes beyond the exercise and healthy dieting.  Women’s health is also about getting education that prevents them from falling into domestic abuse situations.  Curves Espanola understands this very well and found a way to engage women in health practices that cover both phases.

Curves Espanola and CCNNM will provide an opportunity for women of this community to blend all aspects of their health. “It is important that everyone understands that healthy bodies are just part of a whole; and that if women want live healthy life styles they should be educated to avoid dangerous situations that result in unhealthy living.” Said Ramon Garcia assistant director of CCNNM.  The benefits that this brings to the community can range from healthy eating habits, exercising properly, to identifying and ultimately avoiding dangerous personal relationships.

Curves Espanola will host a ZUMBATHON event that will benefit victims of Domestic Violence.  The event will take place on Curves Espanola, 1227 N. Railroad Avenue on August 2, 2012 from 6 PM to 8 PM.  There will be a minimum donation of five dollars to participate.  All proceeds will be donated to the Crisis Center of Northern New Mexico.

Curves Espanola offers a complete fitness and nutrition solution for women in the community. In addition, club promotions and events encourage women to support charitable causes, learn about health-related issues and forge lasting friendships as part of the global Curves community.  By partnering with CCNNM, Curves Espanola supports the over-all health aspects that make up women’s health for all the women in Espanola.

Strong Partnerships, Strong Families

The Crisis Center is committed to providing education on choices for families in our community.  Raising children and providing a non violent environment  in which they can grow in safety and security is the goal of every parent in our community.  The Espanola Public Schools and Hispanic Communication Network are important partners in this effort of bring families the tools they need to support their efforts.

This week we all came together to work toward the goal.  With expert media materials provided by HCN we were pleased to distribute the material with the help of the Espanola School District.

We are delighted to have had the opportunity to meet so many dedicated school professionals that share our vision for our community.  We are also delighted to have been able to provide information that parents need to support their strong families and seek resources that may help them as they raise the next generation.

We look forward to our continuing partnership with the School District and the Community as we move forward in our efforts to education parents and partners in ways to provide healthy families and strong violence free communities.
