All classes are suitable for all abilities and the group setting connects participants and reduces isolation. Additionally, the stress-relieving yoga programme helps increase participants’ confidence and enrich their everyday lives.
FND Hope UK are really pleased to have secured a Grant to help us continue to offer our online Yoga, Pilates and Dance Sessions, if you have not signed up to our weekly movements classes, why not give them a go and register here.
Cindy (Chair for FND Hope UK) said ‘Movement and sport should be all inclusive and this is. Our online movement courses for yoga, pilates and dance have been very popular, it’s a great way for the charity to reach out and help and allows people to try something new and focus on something positive for a little while. I have personally done chair yoga and loved it, great teachers too. If you haven’t tried it yet why not have a go, it’s on line and you can even turn your camera off if you want to.
All of the trustees for FND Hope UK would like to congratulate Laura for securing this for us, very well done.
