About Helen Macnair - my Independent campaign partner
I’ve lived on the Coast for the past ten years and raised my children here.
I feel more at home here than I’ve felt living anywhere. This is my home and I’m supporting Gabby’s candidacy as an Independent Councillor, to do what I can to support positive change on the Central Coast.
I’m a local business woman, yoga teacher and I co-manage Umina Beach Yoga. I specialise in teaching pregnancy yoga and birth workshops to support women and their partners and our midwives at local hospitals.
I’m also a full time yoga and meditation teacher at the International Football and Tennis School at Kariong.
I love working with young women and mothers, using yoga and meditation philosophies to help them reach their full potential and be strong and confident women.
I love the natural beauty of our area and I can feel the huge potential for amazing things to happen here on the Central Coast. There’s a lot of new energy, inspiring local business women and new families moving into the area. Increasingly there are more and more opportunities for us to engage in a variety of local community events like Umina Beach Markets and creative workshops.
I’m running as an Independent to support Gabby in her bid to be an Independent Council member. I respect her energy and passion and I feel connected to Gabby’s plans for our region.
Protecting our local environment, protecting our water, respecting Indigenous sacred lands and culture and engaging and supporting young people are all issues that are dear to my heart.
I have three kids and I see a real need for accessible and relevant youth services on the Peninsula.
The Central Coast Council needs independent free thinkers who can make a positive impact for our community. We need Council representatives who are connected to our community and can help shape our region into the very unique and special place it deserves to be.
I believe we need a Council that supports local businesses, preserves the natural beauty of our area and is forward thinking and looking ahead to the future, not just focusing on short-term gains.
We need a future focussed Council.
