Zahara and Walid’s Couch to 5K! 

As many of you may know, Zahara and Walid; two of our service users are walking a massive 5k for their chosen charities. They are both wheelchair bound, so this is a huge undertaking from them. We want to raise as much money as possible for Heeley City Farm and WAW (World Association of Wrestling) based in Norwich, recently featured on BBC Three’s Step In To The Ring show.

If you would like to read more or donate, please click this link, and thank you for your support.

We support up to 250 clients a week, across a variety of departments to aid in learning and development.

 

We are a multi-purpose site, many businesses call us home, we offer on site workplace training, and host countless conferences and events each year. 

There is always something going on at Burton Street, see what’s on, plan an event or book your place on one our favourite functions.

This session is designed to be a low-key relaxing session for all and any clients who are interested in joining.  The aim is for us all to experience and learn some techniques which help us relax and feel good at home.

 

We generally start with a brief chat and a song, followed by some gentle but energising warm ups.  We then slow down and spend a longer period of time with our microphones muted, listening to relaxing music and doing some breathing exercises together, and then enjoy a guided Peace Out meditation.  This is an opportunity for all clients to listen to peaceful and relaxing sounds and experience some stillness and calm.

 

We advise preparing for this session simply by having to hand any pillows or blankets you may wish to use during the relaxing second half of the session, as people may wish to lay down for this.  However, everyone is free to enjoy this session in whatever way works for them!

 

The session is intended to offer something for everyone, whether they prefer simply listening to familiar voices and relaxing music, or doing gentle movements alongside this which can help our bodies feel good.
