Free Pilates Video from the NHS:

The NHS encourages us to keep fit – particularly during the big confinement – and Pilates is a great way to do that at home.  If you don’t know, Pilates is form of exercise for men and women at all ages and stages, and it focuses on balance, posture, strength and flexibility.  To view this free NHS video click here.

You don’t need to have done any Pilates before to participate. The video lasts for 45 minutes. If you have an exercise mat it is useful. Wear comfortable, loose clothing.

InstructorLive has created these fitness videos. They last from 10 to 45 minutes. Please note: the videos are recorded sessions of live webcasts shown before.

If you like this class you may also enjoy vinyasa flow yoga or pyjama pilates.

Everything Old is New Again

The New Testament Greek group has gone ‘on-line’  using the Zoom web conferencing app. Meetings last for 30 minutes and are at 12.15 on Tuesdays.

Stephen Mason leads the group – if interested click here to email Stephen.

Travel the Silk Roads without getting footsore

Members of the Silk Roads are familiar with the pandemics of history and are well positioned for the current time. Alan Freeland, group leader reports that a number of his technophobe members have managed to set up Telegram so that they can continue to meet online.

If you’re interested in joining them during the travel ban, please contact Alan here.
