Health and Wellbeing Day
Tooting Hub celebrated its bi monthly wellbeing day today we had a fun filled day starting with a cooking demonstration where Christine Street (Centre Manager) and service user Viktoriya Noori showcased different ways to cook porridge using various healthy ingredients to an audience of service users.
This was followed by Susie Brinton, a masseur and Ayurvedic practitioner from Amla Health who delivered a talk on Ayurveda and its influence on nutrition, mind and the body.
Several Service users were then treated to personal head and shoulder massages from Susie which received very positive feedback from service users “I feel like a new man” said one, “the massage was wonderful and brilliant” said another.
A healthy lunch of fish, potatoes and salad was enjoyed by our service users who described it as “perfect” and “beautiful”.
The day was rounded off by some stretching and breathing exercises by WW Mind staff member Alison. Service users found the session ”very relaxing and exhilarating”, some of the service users are pictured stretching in the session.
When asked how what they thought of the day, service users gave a series of glowing comments:
“I enjoyed myself throughout the day”;
“Very helpful and interesting”
“She (Susie) gave a brilliant talk”;
“the exercises were good, something that I could do, the breathing exercises really relaxed me”.
