Register for free via eventbrite by 10th May using this link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/mindful-movement-course-tickets-152668927873.
Every Wednesday by 12pm we will email you with a pre-recorded movement video for each week of the course. The videos will be available for the duration of the course so you can complete the course in your own time.
Although the course is designed for older people it is open to everyone and is a great way to get moving gently, be more present and take a moment of mindfulness during your week.
This course is supported by Arts Council Northern Ireland Arts and Older People Programme funding with a focus on addressing loneliness and isolation through creativity and as a result we will ask you to complete a short email survey before starting the course and after finishing the course. This survey will be used as evaluation of the course's effectiveness by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
