Good morning everyone, how are you all doing? I haven't been exercising for the last couple of days so it's time to get outside into that beautiful sunny day. Science keeps proving how powerful the exercise effect is on mood so I'm looking forward to my morning run.
Hello, This is a final reminder that I am advertising class 'tasters' for new members this Monday, 15th April, at 09:30 and 10:40 if free then click the weblinks to book onto the class. Payment is £6 and required in advance no later than Sunday 12 noon. The 'taster' class will cover a lot of the classic Callanetics exercises, there will, probably, be no music so we can focus on technique. Please do spread the word if you know anyone who would be interested. Thanks, Donna x
I've been interested in finding out what does it mean to be someone's mentor and I've been along to a day's mentor training! So when I saw this article I thought it was worth a share. Everyone can use a mentor, according to Anthony Tjan (CEO of Boston venture capital firm Cue Ball Group and author of Good People), we could all use five mentors. 'The best mentors can help us define and express our inner calling,' says Anthony. In this short list, Tjan has identified the five kinds of people you should have in your corner.
Worth a share from Runner's World: New research provides further evidence that staying active could play a serious preventive role. Exercise has been linked to a reduced risk of certain kinds of cancer. And now, new research suggests that high-intensity interval training, or HIIT, may help thwart the growth of cancer cells, too. Researchers determined that even a single session of HIIT was effective at reducing the growth of colon cancer cells. While the study was performed in cancer survivors, researchers believe the same findings may apply to others as well.
My class taster is now Monday 15th April. I have two class times 9.30 am or 10.40 am so if you would like to try my class before committing to any block then you can find more information and how to book here.
