Movement For Life Workshop

Staying or getting fit is consistently the top or second issue for women in midlife and beyond in our surveys. And most of us know we need to work harder at getting enough exercise as we age, not less. Not just to keep the midlife spread from increasing but because our bodies need movement and our bones and muscles need to be exercised if they are to carry us well into later life. But getting enough exercise and movement can be hard to fit into our daily lives right? Well not any more! In this workshop you’re going to learn all about how to get and keep movement in your daily life and exactly what you can do to make that happen. And it isn’t at all hard!

We’ve worked with movement coach (and author, filmmaker and photographer) Dr Julie Angel on this highly motivational and practical workshop.
