Welcome to our January Newsletter

Every year in January the word “gym membership” peaks in number of searches on Google and rumours has it that in February/March the search changes to “cancel gym membership without fee”…

At Earthlife there are no membership or joining fees, instead our classes are run as 6-7 week courses and when a course is finished you get 1st priority to re-book your space, or you can swap for a different class or stop altogether.  Choose from various types of Yoga, Pilates, Stretch and Ballet, as well as Pregnancy and Mum & Baby Classes.

In recent years Pilates has grown to become one of the most well-known and popular forms of exercise. It is designed to improve physical strength, flexibility and posture, as well as relieve stress and tension. As Pilates is so popular, in addition to our regular 5 weekly classes, we are now adding another beginners class to our schedule. This class will be on a Tuesday lunchtime – 12:30-13:30, starting 8th January for a 6 week course.  Our other classes will stay at the same time/day and to take advantage of our 10% early booking discount (full courses only), please make sure you book and pay by Thursday 3rd January.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been shown to be very effective in treating musculoskeletal disorders, such as inflammatory conditions, tendinitis, carpal tunnel, repetitive strain injuries and many others. TCM looks at the problem holistically and aims to correct the root cause of the problem as well as relieving the symptoms. Andrea, our resident Acupuncturist, studied Acupuncture at the University of Westminster where she gained a First Class Bachelor of Science degree in 2006.

A couple of months ago, we wrote about Reiki Healing and introduced our new Reiki Master, Jacqueline Cunningham.  Jacqueline has been holding regular Reiki Share Groups, and we now also have dates for the next Reiki Level I workshop – 2nd & 3rd February. Reiki level I is for beginners with no previous experience, or for any Complementary Therapist wanting to add a new dimension to their therapy repertoire.

Another workshop coming up, is with our very popular yoga instructor, Jackie McCaul. Check out her afternoon Iyengar Yoga workshop on Saturday 26th January, which will get you energised and ready for the year ahead.
