FITNESS, NUTRITION & STRENGTH - Sunday Jan 21st, 9.30am with Val Craft

January is the time of New Year's resolutions, so many prompted by overindulging at Christmas and where we feel aware that we need to eat more healthily and do some exercise.

In our culture, the advent of technology leading to an ever increasing sedentary lifestyle means that exercise isn’t a nice to have or something for those ‘sporty’ or ‘outdoor’ types, it’s a must for us all if we want to live our lives fully in the years to come.

The word exercise has so many negative connotations though and so thinking about fitness and strength may be more beneficial. Better fitness, strength and more muscle mass (I don’t mean Arnold Schwarzenegger body building mass! I just mean maintain strength for us for life) are correlated with living longer and healthier lives.

Yet the word strength is also loaded with masculine connotations and expectations which mean as women and non-binary people we may be put off from exploring our own potential.

This 90 minute workshop is here to help you…

  • Learn about strength and fitness training
  • Learn about nutrition to support health and longevity
  • Look at what barriers might be standing in your way
  • Make a choice to engage in activity and nutritious food choices, not just for the short term, but as part of your lifestyle now and always

This session won’t involve you getting active, it is more about giving you information and some tools to help you make a change. We are currently working to bring you an in-person session though.

Bring along a pen and pad, a sense of curiosity, any questions you may have and the openness to connect with others in the session.

Ps If you have any questions about fitness, strength training or nutrition please feel free to message me ahead of the meeting so I can prepare the best answer I can for you.

HATHA FLOW YOGA - with Vera Duse Jan 20th 10.30am

Hatha yoga originated in India more than 5000 years ago and was originally taught as a healing system for the mind and to prepare the body for seated meditation. In Hatha yoga, a series of asanas (poses) are practiced together with breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation. 

My classes include a series of postures and gentle stretches connected in a slow flow that guides you into deep relaxation, through fun and light-hearted sequences. Attention is paid to the breath, used as a calming and grounding tool. My classes are suitable for beginners with plenty of options and modifications offered. It’s also appropriate for any other advanced yogini or yogi who wants a calming, relaxing class that will leave you feeling energised and, at the same time, rested.
