receives National Lottery funding
The Love Me Wellbeing Programme
This programme has made my life brighter than it could have been.
The 'Love Me' programme is a community initiative to enhance mental and physical wellbeing in a refreshing and inspiring way. In July, it received support from the National Lottery Community Fund to help more women take simple steps towards a healthy lifestyle and the support has already made an inspiring difference.
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 fully, 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, a pioneering social prescribing centre in South-West London.
