Active Recovery to host wellness fair

Active Recovery will hold a free Active Wellness Fair Saturday, Sept. 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Del Mar Shores Park.

Complimentary yoga, Pilates and fitness classes will be offered every half hour along with children’s games, promotional giveaways, workshops and demos by holistic health practitioners. The event will also feature a raffle to support the Del Mar Shores Park Fund.

“We want to raise awareness about the mind-body approach to addiction recovery,” said Kerri Hadden of Active Recovery.

Active Recovery, launched in Del Mar three months ago, believes fitness and nutrition play a big role in an addict’s recovery process. They provide group activities like hiking, running, walking, yoga and cooking classes.

“They’re told to change their entire lives, really on their own,” said Hadden. “This gives them a chance to be with people who know what they’re going through and are striving for the same thing.”

They work with local treatment centers like Casa Pacifica and Casa Palmera and are looking to move north into Los Angeles, Hadden said.
