Yoga, stretch and flex for everyone - even YOU!

15 January 2015

Age UK Somerset logo

Age UK Somerset is pleased to announce that a Yoga, Stretch and Flex class is starting in Taunton's French Weir Health Centre.

Sessions will run on Wednesdays at 10.30am until 11.30am, starting on Wednesday 11th February.  They will cost £3.50.  There is no need to book and you only pay for the sessions you attend.  No previous experience is necessary and you don't need any special equipment or clothing - just flat shoes and loose, comfortable clothes.


The class will be lead by Cathie Pilgrim.  She said, "This session stretches and tones your body, helping to make you stronger and more flexible whilst improving your breathing.  This will help you to relax and sleep better.  The class is not strenuous, it's about breathing and relaxing and stretching, you've got to make a commitment to yourself."


A participant from a previous session said, "The stretch, breathe and relax sessions help keep my hip joints and my lower back flexible in a safe and gentle way."


So why not come along and join in?  In addition to the gentle, relaxing exercise you may meet new people and make new friends.
