Laughter Yoga – Halesowen

Hi Everyone I’m excited to announce the newest Laughter Yoga club starting at Halesowen College, Whittingham Road, Halesowen, B63 3NA on Wednesday, 31 January 2018 from 7.00 pm. There is no charge but participants generally give a donation of between £3 and £5 to help cover transport and room hire.  It will take place in the ARC Performing Arts building, which is Block 13 and will be in rooms 13101 and 13102 on the ground floor – it is practically in the middle of the complex.  I have attached the poster along with the college map to help people find the venue.  I do hope some of you can join us and I would be most grateful if you could promote it to your users and contacts. Over the course of last year, I undertook some evaluations at several of the Laughter sessions I delivered for a variety of clients from corporate to community groups of all ages.  I have compiled some graphs by inputting the data collected and these show the overall benefits of participating in the laughter sessions.  You can find this information on the following page on my website: http://www.merriemaggie.co.uk/evidence-benefits/ 31-1-18 Merrie Maggie – Halesowen Poster Looking forward to laughing with you soon.

Eat Well Courses

I am currently looking for possible places and groups of people who would be interested in any of our Eat Well courses for next year.  Get Cooking: One day a week over 6 weeks a course designed to help develop skills to produce healthy affordable meals.  This will include advise on how to reduce risks of ill health and disease, as well what all those numbers mean on the back of the packs, why low fat, low sugar etc aren’t always as good for you as you think they are and much more.  Help to prepare and sample different food every week.  Maximum 12 -14 people. Carry on Cooking: A follow on course, if interested, again for one day a week for 6 weeks.  This is more of a hands on course where you cook at least one (if not more) meals each class. Learning more about what you are cooking, the use of alternative ingredients, pick up new tips and ideas, plus much more. Maximum 12-14 people. Master Classes: This is a one off class, taster session and demonstration.  Each one can be adapted to the clientele, in the past we have run course that for; one pot meals, simple meals, low sugar cooking for Diabetes etc.  This can be run for a much larger group of people. All of these courses are suitable for people who have never cooked before to people who cook regular.  A great way to socialise and have a little fun. We have all equipment, including hobs, needed, so if a kitchen is not at hand, we can adapt recipes and cooking to all that we have. At the moment our main priority is for January to March, would you be interested and have a group that would like to get involved? All FREE of charge. Though if you are interested after this time please also get in contact. If you are interested or would like more information please do get in touch.
