Mini Athletics

09:30 - 11:45 Developed by a sports scientist and primary school teacher, our fun, play-based yet structured programme is a fantastic introduction to athletic movement for 2-7 year olds.

Our programme can improve physical literacy, cognitive and social skills. All our activities are game based and encourage creativity and imagination whilst supporting early learning needs.

Athletics forms the basis of almost all sports - learning how to use your body correctly, improving balance, coordination, agility and speed supports a child's sporting life in any activity.

Joy of Movement...gentle, holistic movement and dance for women of all ages

12:00 - 13:00 Joy of Movement is a gently guided class and combines simple, flowing and easy to follow mindful movement and beginners dance for women of all ages, fitness levels and experience. Enjoy an hour of breathing, gentle stretching and simply guided, easy to follow movement to uplifting and inspiring music. Our class is low impact and we focus more on body sensation and feeling good than cardio fitness, though we do get fit in the process! Participants are guided to follow their own energy output. All classes end with mindful breathing and a meditative seated or lying down reflection time. We especially welcome people who haven't moved in a long time, or 'ever' in a class situation as we are a friendly, non judgemental group of ladies of a broad range of ages who just love to dance with no worries of 'getting it right'.
