Getting Fit as One: using the creative assets we have in our community.

We were delighted to have Amona- one of our members- deliver Stretch and Move Fitness at Friday Family Fun with parents and their children. The session, based on yoga principles, was an interactive opportunity for families to get moving and learn some basic yoga moves through play and song. 

Amona made yoga fun and accessible by combining typical moves with songs like ‘The Wheels on the Bus’ and other popular nursery rhymes. She also encouraged parents and their little ones to bond through a range of poses: supporting each other, sitting down together or holding hands. Amona explained that families could practise all of these poses and movements at home as well: an easy way to build in exercise to our daily routines. 

A qualified yoga instructor, specialising in maternity yoga, Amona said how much she enjoyed working together with families in her community. 

‘I loved sharing my love for yoga with the community so much! It’s important to keep focussing on our bodies to lengthen, strengthen and release because daily routines and work can be tough on our muscles and bones.’

At Healthy Living Platform, our programmes are all about exploring the assets and knowledge that we have within our communities: giving our members a platform to share their skills and expertise.
