Wellbeing Tuesday continuing on Zoom

Changes to Classes and Activities at the Hall due to current Government Guidance

Wellbeing Tuesdays:

Starting next week all our Wellbeing Tuesday classes will continue to be available on Zoom; we will no longer be able to hold them face to face at the Hall as a result of the recent changes to government guidelines. For clarity, all this Tuesday’s classes (Tuesday 3rd November 2020) will be available at the Hall and over Zoom as normal. From Tuesday 10th November all our classes will be via Zoom only, until government guidelines change. We will of course be following the government's announcements regarding our options in a month's time.

If you have already booked face to face classes this month, your tickets will automatically be transferred to a Zoom version. Your Zoom link will be available by opening your booking confirmation e-mail, clicking 'View Booking', and then clicking 'View Zoom Event'. If you are unable to participate in classes online please contact Joanna at [email protected]

You can continue to book Zoom classes should you wish and due to the lack of restrictions on capacity you will find more spaces available in the classes.

Should you need clarification contact Joanna from the Hall via [email protected]. We appreciate you support in this difficult time and hope that you continue to enjoy our classes at home.

Movement for Pregnancy and Birth - Mondays 6.00pm-7.00pm

These classes focus on moving in a way that feels good during pregnancy.

They can help you to move intuitively during labour – which is the key to having a calm, gentle birth.

Very effective on pelvic strength, stability, flexibility, and mobility, preventing discomfort and gently training your stamina.

Connect with your body and your baby through movement and awareness.

The movements are simple and slow and suitable for everyone, no dance experience necessary.

Yoga for all: Mondays 7.30-8.30pm

Yoga for All classes are suitable for all levels, from absolute beginners to seasoned yogis, and include asana (poses), pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation practices to develop strength, flexibility and a state of relaxed awareness to improve your overall wellbeing.

Having practised yoga since 2004 and taught since 2012, Richard is an enthusiastic advocate of the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of yoga practice, and how these can help all of us on a practical level in everyday life.

In the current circumstances and with the need to 'track and trace', Stretford Public Hall isn’t allowing drop-in classes. Attendees are asked to book for blocks of 4 classes (£20 for 4 classes).
