What is it?
We have all been through disruptive, uncertain and worrying times in the past few months, hopefully we are through the worst of it and we can now start to get our lives back on track.
More so than ever mental and physical health has come under the spotlight, and rightly so, we have learned a lot about ourselves both in a positive and sometimes negative way.
What shines through the whole dreadful experience is the need for us humans to be at the very least content in our lives.
The aim behind The Wellness Club is to try and create and reaffirm the balance between mental and physical health by stimulating the two vastly complicated mechanisms to work together.
By encorporating a wide variety of exercises and activities with varying degrees of difficulty the mind and body will be challenged in a positive way to hopefully create a happy you!
There won’t be any chanting, holding hands or making daisy chains!
What there will be is an eclectic mix of exercises and activities to promote a variety of differnt health benefits. They won’t all necessairily suit everyone but you are urged to give as many a go as you can and and have fun!
The activities vary week to week and you can see all of the up and coming activities and locations on The Wellness Club calender.
