An award-winning activity programme for women is re-launching Yoga and Pilates sessions in Bushey Rose Garden next month.
Our We Move, She Moves' programme is re-starting its Pilates in the Rose Garden sessions from Friday 10 June, 9.15am until 10am, and Yoga in the Rose Garden, sessions from Wednesday 8 June, from 6pm to 7pm.
The sessions will help to lengthen and strengthen muscles, relax the mind and improve flexibility. The Bushey Rose Garden is the perfect atmosphere for zen - so why not bring a friend or meet new ones.
Councillor Meenal Sachdev, our Portfolio Holder for Community, Leisure, Health and Wellbeing, said: “We Move, She Moves is a brilliant initiative to get women and girls more active, with plenty of options to suit everyone.
"Pilates and Yoga are great for your physical health, but there are also many benefits for your mental health. The Bushey Rose Garden is the perfect place for these classes."
Sarah Lockwood, Pilates instructor, said: "Pilates is a great way to exercise for everyone whatever your fitness level: start slowly and work up to more challenging exercises when you feel ready.
"You'll develop muscle strength and flexibility, working on posture, balance and moving with control which is great for rehabilitation, reducing back problems, and managing long term conditions.
"Pilates gives you time to slow down, and concentrate on your body; a little bit of mindful exercise during busy days."
The rose garden is located between the High Street and Herkomer Road in Bushey. Please wear comfortable clothing, bring a drink and a mat. Costs are £5 per session for Pilates in the Rose Garden and £6 per session for Yoga in the Rose Garden.
