Return to fitness and fun at the Hive
We currently have some fun and fulfilling opportunities for those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) – or long-term health conditions – to get involved in local fitness classes.
The pandemic has affected many people’s confidence and has had an adverse effect on the population’s mental health. We’re now offering the chance for teens, children and adults to rebuild activity and motivation.
Many people with disabilities were negatively impacted by Covid due to having to shield, suffering additional feelings of fear and isolation due to their conditions. We will support this group to grow confidence, resilience, physical and mental health and wellbeing.
We will deliver the following five eight-week programmes in Guildford with FREE weekly classes for our Return to Fitness and Fun at the Hive:
- Seated dance for age 10–15
- Seated dance for age 16+
- Seated yoga for age 10–15
- Seated yoga for age 16+
- Dance and fitness for those with autism and learning disabilities for age 18+
Classes are to be held in May and June at two centres:
The accessible Hive, on Park Barn Drive, boasts a community ethos. This warm and welcoming wellbeing space caters for people of all ages and abilities.
Well-equipped, attractive Queen Elizabeth Park Centre in Stoughton offers excellent facilities for groups and public meetings, and houses the Haven cafe.
These fun and dynamic courses will enable participants to:
- relieve stress
- improve mental health
- boost the immune system
- improve flexibility, motor skills and core strength
- improve posture
- learn mindfulness
- build friendships and supportive networks.
Enjoy those classes? We hope that you will be inspired to attend our crowdfunded family festival on the 26th June for those with SEND at Guildford Spectrum Leisure Complex.
Yoga and Wellness sessions for children and teens are on the menu, and the Synergy guiding principles of inclusion, creativity and fun for all will be much in evidence!
We are making great progress towards our financial target. For details about our crowdfunding initiative and to donate to this worthy cause, see https://www.spacehive.com/inclusive-family-send-festival#/idea
