About 20 people took part in a free workshop on November 22, to launch a new initiative aiming to explore the link between financial and physical wellbeing.

Esperance based mortgage broker and financial planning business, TV Financial Services, held its first Wealth and Wellness workshop at The Swan Effect Yoga studio.

The session led participants through a relaxing yoga class followed by a financial goal setting and resources session.

TV Financial Services director Tamara Virgo said the event aimed to empower the community and demonstrate that wealth was about balance, not what was in your bank account.

"As a licensed financial planner I find that a lot of people are out of balance due to their financial thoughts, causing them to worry or stress," she said.

"If that starts to affect your physical and your mental wellbeing and your balance in life, then that can have larger consequences, hence the wealth and wellness workshop is all about bringing that balance and connection."

Ms Virgo said her business would host quarterly workshops from February 2020.

"I've had as passion for a long period of time to bring educational resources and tools to people in a safe environment because sometimes reaching out is really quite difficult," she said.

"I have been working on the TV Financial Knowledge Centre for over 18 months now, and basically the vision behind the knowledge centre is to empower people with tools to help them find better financial wellbeing."
