Australia’s first avocado wellness weekend will be held in Sydney this October (2019).
From avocado facials and avocardio workouts to dying fabric with avocado seeds, Avotherapy is set to be a smash with avo-lovers and better yet, it’s entirely free.
Avotherapy is a celebration of the mood-boosting health benefits of avocado, brought to you by Australian Avocados. It will be popping up in Surry Hills at Paramount Recreation Club with two full days of wellness workshops and activities.
WHEN: One weekend only – Saturday 12 & Sunday 13 October 2019
TIME: 9am – 4pm. A full schedule workshops and sessions for Avotherapy is available here.
WHERE: Paramount Recreation Club (Level 2, 80 Commonwealth St Surry Hills)
WHAT: Avotherapy is an avocado-inspired wellness weekend that includes complimentary:

- Avocado facials to leave your skin soft and supple.
- Good Mood Food workshops hosted by dietitian Lyndi Cohen (author of The Nude Nutritionist), focused on why the nutrients and healthy fats in avocados make them the ideal feel good food.
