Zoom Online Exercise Session for Young People - replacing young minds yoga at John Bunyan Sports and Fitness Coronavirus update

There is an online exercise session for young people that has been launched and tested as a pilot in the last couple of weeks. It was an extension of the adult online exercise classes that have proved very popular at this difficult time and designed as a replacement for the successful young minds yoga that was taking place at John Bunyan Sports and Fitness.

The session now takes place every Thursday at 3pm and includes 30 mins of gentle yoga and stretching, 10 mins of mediation and 20 mins for a social and chat group which is managed by two staff members offering a safe space for an informal chat about current pressures and ways of coping with lockdown.

The session is a secured zoom session which is password protected and has a waiting room. Anyone who is interested in attending must register with CAMHs via email with their name, age and email address. The session has a waiting room and only those registered are admitted to take part. The session is available for 11-19 year olds. The initial feedback from young people has been positive and they have been involved in the format and design of the activity.
