Yoga is an ancient form of body and mind wisdom; the practice addresses physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Yoga poses stretch your muscles and increases your range of motion. With regular practice, it will improve your flexibility, regulate your breath and heart rate to relieve anxiety, stress and encourage restful sleep.

Walking for Health offers the benefits of gentle exercise to increase the heart rate and number of steps taken per day. It promotes mobility, confidence and improves sleep.  Being outdoors increases sense of community and peer support. Walking can reduce risk of injury and disease such as diabetes and maintain body weight.  Please abide to social distancing rules.
