Laois Wellness is an online health and wellness programme for adults in Laois for the month of October 2021. It is a mixture of gentle movement classes, health and nutrition workshops. The online exercise sessions will be delivered through Zoom and you will perform them in your own home. We will send you written instructions for downloading and using zoom before the programme starts.
We recommend using a mat for the exercise classes but you do not need any equipment or much space to take part. All exercises will be performed at your own ability and all exercises will be modified to ensure that they take into consideration any injuries or clinical issues that you have. All training sessions will be delivered by trained professionals and you will receive take home resources including videos, recipes and training diaries as part of this programme.
You do not need to be ‘fit’ to take part in these classes. You just need a desire to improve your wellbeing & quality of life.
We are delighted to say this programme is brought to you in partnership with Laois Sports Partnership, Laois Connects and the HSE, so places on this programme are completely FREE for participants!
