The 'Love Me' programme is a local community initiative to enhance mental and physical wellbeing in a refreshing and inspiring way. This month it received support from the Active Richmond Fund to help more women in the Borough take simple steps towards a healthy lifestyle.
The programme aims to build confidence and enthusiasm for everyday life with a broad range of activities; motivate a healthy lifestyle by providing insight into the power of breathing, superfoods, and fun exercise; instil an understanding of how taking a simpler approach to life can help ourselves, those around us, and our planet; and, inspire participants to embrace who they are and how valuable they are by focusing on and utilising tools inside of them.
Each week, the participants discover ways to: quieten their minds, rise above their emotions and, use their words powerfully (with former International athlete Susie Bush-Ramsey), whilst exploring: dance (with Choreographer and West-End Dancer, Emma Chrispin), breathing fully and stretching (with Frankie Alpino), pilates (with Women's Health Specialist, Lydia Campbell), superfoods, smoothie making, walking, sustainable style, origami and block-printing (with fine artist, Red Gibbons-Lejeune) all in the process.
The programme currently runs at LiveWell Kew. Visit Take7simplesteps website to discover more about the programme and watch a mini video about the activities which take place each week.
Social Prescribing places are available for the programme along with places for those who do not have means to pay.
