Holistic wellness promoted at CPUT

The Bellville campus of the CPUT was the epitome of holistic wellness during a three day celebration that aimed to promote the many facets of living a healthy life.

Seven dimensions of wellness lent colour and character to this initiative, namely spiritual wellness, intellectual wellness, social wellness, emotional wellness, occupational wellness, physical wellness, and environmental wellness.

Beauty and health related businesses and non profit organisations exhibited, sold products, or rendered services like massages, jet therapy, manicures and pedicures. Other products on offer included Herbalife, Acorn products, Argillo pottery, Glocell airtime, Swiss Guard, Pottery and Tupperware.

Exhibitors included Student Counseling, the Clinic, Co-operative Education, Nusight, WP Blood Transfusion Service, Metro District Health Services (Sensible Drinking), Cape Mental Health, US Mental Health Centre, SANTA (TB), PGWC Oral Health and the Arthritis Foundation.

Staff and students were invited to participate in dance, katabox and pilates classes, or to enjoy the vibrant ambience in the air as Radio Good Hope FM, Hip Hop artist Lungelo and Radio personality Sandra Rosenburg took to the stage.

The student quad was the centre of attention as this was where the many exciting demonstrations and activities occurred. Here, there were renditions of poetry, an aerobic display, hip hop dancing, drama displays, drumming sessions as well as judo and karate demonstrations.

In addition a mechanical bull, clowns and ball jugglers kept the crowds entertained. In the atrium, a Hungarian classical music trio played harmonious music entertaining the staff and students who passed through.

Dr Abie De Villiers, chairperson of the Wellness Committee said according to an evaluation done during Wellness Week, the majority of participants on the Bellville campus gave the wellness concept and activities the thumbs up.

β€œIt is my opinion that the week achieved its objectives. The CPUT community was able to mingle with each other and enjoy the friendly atmosphere in the quad. In talking with people I got the impression that it was a good example of edutainment, where people were entertained, but also educated on the need for a healthy life style,” said Dr De Villiers.”
