This Month's Top Ten features activities to maintain happiness and healthiness in January.
1. Laughter for Health at The Isbourne

10th - 27th January 2019
3. Social Cycling with The University of Third Age
The aim is to have a chatty time whilst exploring the area around Gloucester by bike. We don't race, as most of our outings are timed at 9mph. We aim to have two stops (at least one in a pub) per journey. You don't have to ride the whole journey loop. Our outings are usually in the drier months. Watch the newsletter and website for details when the rides will take place.
4. Breathing for Optimal Health at The Isbourne
We all know how to breathe, but could the way you are doing it be affecting your overall health? Good breathing is fundamental to our wellbeing. It wards off diseases, lowers our cholesterol levels and alleviates physical pain, stress and anxiety. As we mature into adults our lifestyles and conditioning gradually erode the natural, uninhibited access to life force that we are born with, as seen in babies and young children. In this course, you will explore how to assess and identify unhealthy breathing patterns, learn specific exercises and techniques, discover how to be more mindful of your breathing and improve your posture for long-term health benefits. You’ll leave with a unique set of tools to improve your life physically, mentally, emotionally and even spiritually. Beneficial to all, but particularly those in sedentary work and those suffering from stress, anxiety, fatigue, inexplicable pains, cramps, tingling, insomnia and irritability.
24th January-4th April 2019
5. Badminton at the Crypt School Sports
The Badminton group takes place weekly on Monday evenings at the Crypt School Sports. We have four courts for an hour, and usually have around 16-20 players, so there are opportunities to take a breather. The standard is friendly competition, with the emphasis on friendly.
6. Egyptian Belly Dance & Bollywood for Beginners at The Isbourne
Build your confidence, improve your fitness and discover your feminine side! Ann’s style is playful, elegant, graceful and fun. She aims to help every student feel relaxed and comfortable while learning modern and traditional Egyptian and Indian moves, techniques and dances to great music. Each term you will learn a combination of key moves every Belly Dancer should know and how to put the moves together in an exciting group dance choreography to different styles of music. If you have an interest in Egypt and India, there is a bit of history and culture thrown in too!
