Hello, I'm Laura
In school, I was among the least sporty students and not highly talented in team sports. One thing I've always enjoyed was exercise, but the how or where to practice was unbeknownst to me, and this is way before the exploding sensation of Youtube exercise channels!
Fast forward a few years- I obtained a graduate certificate in worksite wellness and health promotion, trained as a group fitness instructor, worked in corporate wellness near The Canadian Rockies and earned a Master's Degree in Physical Activity and Health in Germany. I am now the person who helps people ease into exercise and healthier behaviours, and I absolutley love it.
I started Green Blue Active because people are not getting enough physical activity to support their health, and many are totally unaware of green exercise and how great it is for their mental and physical health. In today's stressed out, burned out, and increasingly sedentary environments, green exercise is particularly relevant because studies have shown it can improve mood and reduce acute anxiety, cognitive load, and depressive symptoms. In addition, blue spaces also offer stress-reducing qualities and persons living near blue spaces tend to be more active.
Now it is time to share the knowledge and increase the public perception of green and blue exercise for both adults and children.
Interested in having Green Blue Active visit your organization, school, or youth club in the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern or Berlin region?
