- DURATION 1 hr
We are born to move and exercise has well known health benefits for people of all ages but it also wonderful for our mental health: exercise raises your mood, calms anxieties, reduces chronic pain and can help process trauma, emotion and painful experience often held in the body rather than the mind. This talk considers how exercise benefits mental wellbeing and the forms of exercise to use for different issues such as anxiety, depression or trauma, no matter what your age or level of fitness. There will even be a bit of movement for those who would like to try!
