Strictly Come Dancing’s FitSteps for ALL ages and Abilities

This fun packed class has been deisgned by Strictly’s Natalie Lowe and Ian Waite. Take the dances and songs from Strictly, forget about having a partner to dance with, and enjoy an easy to follow trip around your very own ballroom in your local village hall.  This class helps build confidence, burn calories and boosts cardiovasular and motor fitness.  And most importantly it’s a little escape from day to life into the magic and sparkle of Strictly! who doesn’t need that in their lives?

At different times of year there are classes running for the following groups (check the timetable to find out if there is one running for you this term) 

Mini FitSteppers – Kids age 5 to 12 years

FitSteps FAB (For All Bodies) – suitable for the older active community

FitSteps and FitSteps Extreme – suitable for the rest of us!

POSITIVE POSTURE & YOGA

My yoga classes are evolving, to address our fundamental foundations for movement.  Taking the Egoscue Method of Health through Motion we start our pratice with realignmement exercsies before we strengthen and stretch.  This newly developed class has been born out of my own frustrations with injurys and niggles (see full story in About Me).  I want to share this highly effective postural alignment class to help you address aches and pains, boost physical and sporting performance, minimise injury and set the foundations for all the physical and day to day activities you enjoy.  I am enrolled with Egoscue Institute and am training to become a Postural Alignment Specialist.

SUITABLE for ANYONE & BENEFITS EVERYONE!

My aim with yoga is always to de-mystify and offer a practice which is relevant to our 21st Century minds and bodies. POSTITIVE POSTURE offers the opportunity for this and supports all physical pursuits such as Climbing, Yoga, Running, Cycling, Walking, Gardening, Dance, Golf, Swimming etc

With a positive appraoch and reminders of what’s important delivered through a positive relaxation at the end of the class your mental health is restored and your whole body is balanced.

A friendly down to earth approach to restore balance, health and peace in our busy lives.  PLEASE BOOK AHEAD and bring a mat if you have one (I have spares).

Feel Good Fitness

My own blend of everything I know that keeps us well rounded in our fitness and health.

Cardio exercise through fun dance moves, strength and toning exercises to boost metabolism and keep our bones healthy, a little Piloxing and Zumba thrown into the mix and you have a fun filled hour giving you everything you need to help you feel great and look good. Add to that a super boost of motivation, positivity and friendship and your week is sorted. It’s for everyone! All shapes sizes, ages and abilities. PLEASE BOOK AHEAD and bring a mat if you have one (I have spares).
