For anyone who has cancer, or is caring for someone with cancer.

Stress prevention through Tai Chi & Qi Gong

Tai Chi and Qi Gong exercises help relaxation.

To relax is to conserve energy.

Tai Chi and Qi Gong use a well balanced interplay of tension and release that is usually associated with general well-being and emotional stability.

From motion you obtain serenity and stability by the release of tension through the continuous shifting of weight from one foot to the other.

Traditional Chinese medical theory is the basis of the specific Qi Gong exercises.

A typical session starts with practicing the routine (either seated or standing depending upon the individual physical condition) to soft music which takes approximately 10 minutes.

The bulk of the session is spent explaining the movements of the routine along with how and why they are helpful and then the session is normally closed by performing the exercise routine once more.

The project is designed and funded for women living in the Highlands, aged 18 years and over, who are experiencing any of the following:

•Low self-esteem

•Feelings of isolation

•Lacking in confidence or motivation

•Low mood or anxiety

The Women's Cycle to Health project aims to increase women’s mental and physical well-being through supportive, regular group bike rides and welcomes riders of all abilities.

Cycling is a sociable activity and a great way to meet new people. It can be fun and give you a real sense of freedom. Cycling can improve your physical fitness and help you lose weight. The sense of achievement gained from engaging in cycling can help boost confidence and self esteem.

If you can't ride a bike at all we can teach you. If you need a bit of a boost to get back on your bike we can do that too. Whatever level you are at, the aim is to give you the skills and confidence to get out, ride safely and feel better.

We can provide a bike, bike helmet and waterproofs, if required.

You don't need to be fit to join this project, just a willingness to ride a bike.

If you would like more information or would like to register your interest in the project please phone or email

Once we have been notified of your interest, we will contact you to arrange a one to one meeting as soon as possible. Following the one to one, if it is agreed that the project is suitable, we will offer you a place in a group. This may happen quickly or there could be a wait.

Wednesday from : 0900 to 1700 Weekly

Note
   Following the initial rides, there is the opportunity to stay part of the group with regular Wednesday evening and Saturday morning rides.
   
   On the first Wednesday evening of every month there will be a women's only workshop session.

Singing group for those that sing and those that think they can’t.

Our group has developed to become confident, happy and harmonious singers with a healthy repertoire of great sing-along songs.

There is no need to read music as all songs are taught by ear and harmonies develop easily.

So if you think you can only sing in the bath, why not come along?

Or if you ever wanted to be part of a group and just haven't had the chance, come and join us!
