The new classes are:

Tai Chi for Wellbeing & Balance

Tai Chi combines safe and effective exercises for the health of the body and mind. It consists of controlled flowing movements and breathing, helping to improve lung function, circulation, strength, stability and alleviate stress and anxiety.

Classes will take place every Tuesday from 11.30am to 12.30pm via Zoom.

Choose2Move

Choose2Move is a light-to-moderate physical activity class, set to music, designed for people with mobility limitations. The aim is to improve strength, balance, flexibility and overall wellbeing. All exercises can be adapted to all levels of ability and most can be performed seated, if necessary.

Classes will take place every Tuesday from 10.30am to 11.30am via Zoom.

If you are interested in joining please complete the following questionnaire: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/2GE65P/

Each class is led by an experienced fitness instructor and cost £2 per session. Payment will be taken once the online form has been completed.

Cllr Chris Brine, Chair of Stroud District Council’s Community Services & Licensing Committee said:

“One of Stroud District Council’s key priorities is to promote the health and wellbeing of our communities.

The Health & Wellbeing team’s virtual classes have been extremely popular and have really helped people through the monotony of lockdown.

We hope these new classes will help people keep fit and active in their own homes.”
