Lockdown Morning Movement – General Dance for Wellbeing Classes

Combining her love of music and movement, Louise has developed Morning Movement, a Dance for Wellbeing class for November 2020 which is focused on helping you to let your hair down, have fun and release the tensions of daily life.

Many of us are missing being able to have a dance with friends. Now you can do that virtually with a Morning Movement session. Book your place HERE

What’s involved
This workshop starts with gentle stretching movements to release tension. More dynamic stretches follow along with a playlist which is carefully crafted by Louise for a maximum feel-good experience. It ends with a mini-relaxation which leaves you with a feeling of calm and wellbeing.

What’s needed
Water
A chair/cushion if you wish to sit for beginning stretches and end relaxation
