People taking a yoga class.


Yoga encourages mental and physical relaxation, which helps reduce stress and anxiety.

Yoga poses may help you release physical blockages like muscle knots, helping release emotions and tension.

They also promote the release of mood-boosting endorphins, which are the feel-good hormones that can positively affect how you handle stress.

Yoga is held every Wednesday from half 7 to 9. The class is held online via Zoom.

Social Therapy

Social events are the times when a large group of people meet at a designated meeting point and jump on the bus.  As soon as everyone’s accounted for we hit the road.  We could be visiting local and rural heritage and cultural sites.  We stop for lunch and some site seeing and then on to our next destination, just sit back and enjoy or even better join in the singing!

Please check out out Facebook page for information regarding these events!
