Pilates with Jill
Jill Langley is running weekly pilates sessions on Zoom. Pilates is proven to improve strength and flexibility whilst helping to reduce stress and anxiety.
These sessions are every Tuesday at 9am-10am and Wednesday at 5:45pm-6:45pm.
Our Mins can also access videos to go with these sessions.
These sessions have been getting great feedback from our MINs, as can be seen below.
“Jill had a calming effect, even though the sessions were through zoom she explained it all so perfectly”
“I felt really strong after the session and that feeling stayed with me for days after the session”
“Jill is a fantastic pilates instructor. I have noticed a massive improvement in my body and it has influenced my mood as well”
“I’ve been loving the Pilates sessions. I find them so relaxing and therapeutic. They help reduce my anxiety as I can completely switch off”
Jane also has her own website where you can find out more information about her classes: https://www.communitypilatesandexercise.org
Stella Eden - Making Isolation Less Isolating
Virtual Afternoon tea at the Sofa- making isolation less isolating
Stella is an author, speaker and the founder of Stella’s Open Road Trip & events -helping women affected by domestic abuse to reclaim their power- their inner self. After 18 years of emotional, psychological, physical and economic abuse she found the strength and courage to leave.
Every Tuesday 4pm -4:40pm, Stella invites women to join her in an afternoon tea from the comfort of your own home. It takes place on zoom and is a women only space for women affected by domestic abuse. Joining the Virtual Afternoon tea at the Sofa are different guest speakers (one new each week!) who will provide tips, guidance, help and support.
Our founder and CEO, Laura Riley has attended several of these sessions and highly recommends them! "Having done a well-being session for our Mins back in 2017, I was super exited about this new project! With acupuncturist and crystal therapist Michelle as guest speaker, we spoke about the power of pressure points and acupuncture in relieving stress, how these techniques can reduce anxiety and help those who struggle to sleep."
Stella and her sessions are also very popular with our MIN's, with the following feedback being recieved:
"It was lovely seeing smiling faces. It was nice to do something for me”
“Stella is Brilliant. Pure motivation and inspiration to move on.”
“She is very positive and upbeat and encouraging. These sessions helped me loads”
“Stella is lovely! Her enthusiasm and positivity is catching”
