– Preparing for the easing of lockdown –
Join Aimee for an exciting new five week online course, VIA zoom, starting Friday the 14th of April 2021. A taster session will run next week (7th of April) so that you can try before you buy.
Preparing to get fit, moving and active again after lockdown…
There will be a free taster session next week for our upcoming 5 week online Move it or Lose it! Course ran VIA zoom, from the comfort of your home.
As the end is hopefully in sight, preparing for a more active lifestyle is as important as ever. Especially looking after our physical and mental wellbeing moving out of lockdown. Our gentle movement and exercise classes help to open up the body and tone muscles in a safe, inclusive environment. We also combine movements and practice a short, simple meditation at the beginning and end of the session to help with mental wellbeing.
Here’s a snippet of some facts about the amazing work we do at Move it or Lose it! – Socially, mentally and physically.
Move it or Lose it is an exercise class designed for those age 50+ and over, or those with limited mobility and a need for gentle exercise. It helps with maintaining flexibility, mobility, aerobic fitness, balance and strength. They help “turn back the clock” and help maintain independence. The exercises can be done standing, seated on a chair or standing with chair support. Attending a Move it or Lose it class is great fun and as much a social event as a fitness class. It will help you stay fit, motivated and active for life!
When will the course run?
The taster class will be on Friday the 7th of April at 3:00-4:00pm. The classes will run for five weeks. It will run Fridays 3:00-4:00pm every week from the 14th of April to the 11th of May.
If you sign up to the full course, here will be weekly emails and articles to help you develop a home practice. It will include tips of how to improve mental and physical wellbeing. This is really important as we start to approach the easing of lockdown restrictions, as many are finding the transition a challenge.
Drop ins will be available at £3.50 per class, however you will not get the emails and support to develop a home practice during the time the course runs.
What will I learn on the course?
You will learn gentle movements to help improve flexibility, aerobic fitness, balance and strength. This can be done seated, with chair support or free-standing. You will also learn how to incorporate movement into your daily life in bitesize chunks. Also, you will get advice on developing your own routines for day to day life. Things such as making a little exercise routine waiting for the kettle to boil can make a massive difference to our wellbeing.
There will also be elements of how to invoke relaxation into your daily life.
Do I need specific equipment to join the course?
All you need is a sturdy chair, some comfortable footwear and some 1kg hand weights. However, if you don’t have hand weights, tins of beans make wonderful substitutes!
