Wellbeing Wednesdays

Good morning Everyone,

Welcome to this week’s Wellbeing Wednesday. I hope everyone enjoyed last weeks ‘Virtual Games at the Hub’ set up by the fantastic team at active schools. I know that us in school had a great day taking part in some of the activities. With the wide range of activities that they have been made available by active schools it gives a fantastic opportunity to have a range of activities to fall back on at any time.

This week we are going to be doing a short fitness circuit consisting of five movements working on  both our strength as well as our stamina. The beauty of an exercise circuit like this is you can tailor it to your own abilities. You can do one of the exercises or all five doing as many reps as you feel comfortable with. Although yoga is finished it works as a great partner to physical exercise to avoid injury so feel free to keep that going if you wish.

Have a great week everyone and I’ll be back with an update next week.

Rory

 

 

 

Wellbeing Wednesdays

Good morning Wveryone and welcome to this week’s Wellbeing Wednesday.

I hope everyone has been having lots of fun practising yoga over the last couple of weeks and this has helped you to relax and keeping your body fresh and flexible. Unfortunately, this week we are moving on but as I have said before if you have enjoyed any of the previous activities keep doing them at home you its great to keep active!

However, we do have a special treat for Wellbeing Wednesday this week. Today some of us were meant to be attending Games at the Hub at St Augustine’s Secondary School for a day of fun games. Although we are disappointed not to be attending the event active schools have done a fantastic job of organising a virtual event of us. Below is a link for you to follow at home which takes you to a website with 14 different activity videos for you to copy at home. You can do 1 activity or 14 as many times as you want just whatever suits you best.

I hope everyone has a fantastic time taking part in the ‘Virtual Games at the Hub’ and don’t forget to share your photos.

Have a great week everyone.

Rory
