Wellbeing Centre Offers Free Online Classes for All During Coronavirus Lockdown

A Kettering wellbeing centre is helping local people stay fit and healthy during the coronavirus lockdown by offering a series of completely free online classes, including yoga, Pilates and mindfulness.

Like most businesses, The Ironstone Wellbeing Centre, based in Ironstone Place, has been forced to close its doors due to the pandemic, but has since moved some of its services online with a series of professionally filmed classes.

They were initially offered free to centre members, but the centre has now decided to make them available to the whole community and particularly wants to ensure NHS and key workers are aware of and can access the platform.

Beth Shine, General Manager at Ironstone Wellbeing Centre, said the classes have been proving a hit with people using them.

She said:

“We see ourselves very much as a community hub and given the increased pressures on everyone at the moment we wanted to do something to support the health and wellbeing of the whole community during these extremely difficult times.

“The classes are professionally shot and are a good reflection of what people can normally experience at the centre. We are currently releasing one a day and they are then stored so people can access them whenever they wish.

“We initially released the classes free to members however we believe at this time it’s vital for everyone to have access to tools to support physical and mental wellbeing so we have decided to extend the services as free to anyone who wishes to use it.”

Zumba, FitSteps, Tai Chi and pregnancy yoga classes are also on offer over the coming weeks, as is a children’s Yoga class if parents fancy offering their little ones something different to Joe Wicks’ live PE lessons.

Other classes available at the centre when it is open include meditation, Tai Chi, FitSteps, Hatha Yoga, Seated Yoga and many more.

“It is vital that people look after their mental and physical wellbeing during this unprecedented situation, and regular exercise is an extremely important part of this,” continued Beth

“As we’re all being told to stay indoors as much as possible, it is especially important for people to be able to exercise in their homes. We hope these classes will go some way to helping with the current situation we all find ourselves in.”
