The Wellbeing Project

Thanks to funding from the Leicestershire and Rutland Communities Foundation our free wellbeing initiative has taken shape and we have been able to put together another 12 months of wellbeing sessions surrounding yoga, mindfulness and other therapeutic sessions that we can now offer for free to the community. These specialised sessions are a great opportunity for anyone in the area who wants to boost their physical and emotional health, manage stress and come together to create a circle of people who care and support each other. So far these sessions have been of great benefit to those who have attended, and we have had people of all ages, walks of life and abilities. 

Our free sessions run from the Marlene Reid Centre, Coalville, our 5 hours of activities can be booked via our services tab. They include:

Yoga Social - Mondays 10am - 11.30am

This session aims to provide a workout for both the body and the mind, incorporating group sharing and touching on different topics to help those within the group achieve greater self awareness and replace destructive habits with healthy, healing choices. As well as a physical practice we use embodiment practices to help people find presence in their day to day life.

Chair Yoga - Mondays 12.30 - 1.30pm

This chair yoga class is a chance for those with physical limitations to take part in a full yoga class where we work on releasing and stretching and strengthening muscles in the upper body and working on core activation. We then work on some more slow, mindful movement bringing elements of Thai chi and finish with deep breathing exercises and meditation.

Breath, Strength & Zen - Wednesdays 5.30-6.30pm

This class is based on vinyasa power yoga but all levels are welcome to join as poses can be modified. It's a great way to relieve stress and reconnect with your body, quiet your mind and you can guarantee you will leave feeling fantastic.

Family Drum Circle - Fridays 5pm-6pm

Drumming has been used for thousands of years to help maintain physical, spiritual, and mental health. Promoting self expression and healing - drumming has a positive effect on anxiety, grief, fatigue, depression and behavioural issues. It helps children strengthen their ability to focus and work on impulse control and decision making skills. Playing the drums can help us serious adults express ourselves and get in touch with their emotional state, making their the perfect activity for people of all ages to connect.  Come and join the fun!

Please note, All our groups and sessions run term-time only excluding Wednesdays Breath, Strength & Zen class.
