The impact of ageing on the body and mind and how to use sleep, nutrition and exercise to halt it

Why and how our body and brain age. This session will explain what changes we can make now to influence our own ageing process and make the most of our future life.

Pelvic Floor Health

Pelvic floor dysfunction can be anything from stress leakage and increased urgency to full incontinence, to pain during intimate examinations or sex. Often pelvic floor dysfunction happens after childbirth and around menopause, but it can happen at any time of life. Understand how the pelvic floor works, what your symptoms mean, when to get professional help and learn simple exercises to improve the function. In addition, this session is ideal for anyone who wants to prevent pelvic floor dysfunction in the future.

Strength in age

Once we reach our 30’s we start to lose muscle and bone unless we introduce resistance work to our routine. This session will introduce you to a 10 minute fitness test program that you can do in your own home and with no equipment. 5 simple exercises will help you reduce the risk of weakening in your upper and lower body, core and cardiovascular system. You can even track your progress and improvements. The session will coach safe technique and adaptions for new starters, injuries and more experienced people.
