Dance for Wellbeing
Louise has integrated her vast experience in working in special needs services in designing a workshop specifically for participants on the Autism Spectrum Disorder, and also for individuals with wider special needs. These classes will run Mondays at 7pm and Tuesdays at 11am from January 18th/19th 2021.
This workshop starts with gentle stretching movements to release tension. More dynamic stretches follow along with a playlist which I have carefully crafted for a maximum feel-good experience. It ends with a mini-relaxation which leaves you with a feeling of calm and wellbeing.
This Dance for Wellbeing class has been developed through 10 years of my work in wellbeing group facilitation in Special Needs services, the prison service, youth mental health and through psychology, yoga and mindfulness training.
What you will need
A chair/cushion if you wish to sit for beginning stretches and end relaxation
