Being Healthy and Looking after Yourself with Herbs - 20th July 2017

Free Health & Wellbeing Workshop funded by the John Dawber Trust for the residents of Lincoln

Thursday 20th July 2017 – 10.00am—12.00pm

Venue—Queens Park Community Hub, South Park, Lincoln, LN5 8EW

Being Healthy and Looking after Yourself with Herbs

There are so many different ways that we can help ourselves to become and feel healthier. If we have a simple acute illness, like a cough or cold, or hayfever, or even if we have a tummy upset, there are easy recipes that we can put together at home, to make our own medicine, with what’s growing around us, or what might be already in our kitchen cupboard, to help us to feel better. In this 2 hour workshop, we’ll discuss and learn about some of the ways we can use herbs and common weeds and make simple medicinal preparations from them, and make a few within the   session, which you can take home.

“Physical Health Problems”

Problems and illnesses of the body can often feel like they are out of our hands and that there’s nothing we can do about them. But is that really the case? Not only attitude, but also daily habits, can have a big impact upon how we experience health issues and, more importantly, how long they last. This workshop considers some of the needs of the human body and how, if you meet those needs, you may help existing or avoid all manner of future health issues.

Herb Detectives - 7th September 2017

Free Health & Wellbeing Workshop funded by the John Dawber Trust for the residents of Lincoln

Thursday 7th September 2017 – 10.00am – 12.00pm

Venue – Ellie’s Garden, Tower Estate, Lincoln

Herb Detectives: Getting up close and personal with medicinal weeds and plants from the edges

Much of what grows around us on the edges of our gardens, and along paths, is often thought of as “weeds” and pulled up and discarded. But did you know, that some of what we throw away as garden waste, might actually be useful for our health? In this outdoor workshop, we’ll be rooting around Ellie’s Garden on the Tower Estate, being herb detectives for the morning, searching out what’s growing and learning how to use it in the home, and making a preparation or two from what we find. Dress for the outdoors (and for the weather) and wear sensible shoes!

Adaptive Chair Yoga Class - 10th October 2017

Tuesday 10th October 2017 – 10.00am – 11.00am

Free Health & Wellbeing Workshop Funded by the John Dawber Trust for the residents of Lincoln

It is hoped that both sessions will take place at Croft Street Community Centre but will confirm venue nearer the time.

Learn tools and techniques to relax and reduce stress, helping cope with emotional stresses and strain.

Yoga improves breathing, increases range of movement, helps maintain muscle tone and flexibility. It is a supportive practice to help anyone breathe better, reduce tension and calm the nervous system.

This approach teaches the universal principles of yoga poses that are accessible to all, regardless of physical ability. The benefits of yoga are available to everyone.

The classes are designed to suit people either seated in a chair or in a wheelchair, those not able to participate in general yoga classes and those who cannot stand for long periods of time.

You will learn techniques that you can easily continue on a chair within your own home. Chair yoga adapts traditional yoga poses, so they can be done with a chair for support, making yoga more accessible.
