11:00
Tai Chi Class new Finished 11:00 - 12:00 Department of Physics, Bragg Building, Lecture Theatre Foyer Extension Room 155A

T’ai Chi is a gentle and meditative form of exercise. Practice not only improves our physical health, including posture, balance, breathing and circulation, but helps to calm the mind and relieve stress.

Alison Warlow has been practising T'ai Chi and qigong since 1999, and teaching since 1994. She teaches a number of weekly classes in and around Cambridge, and is a registered instructor with the T'ai Chi Union of Great Britain.

14:30
The Strengthening Personal Resilience programme new Finished 14:30 - 15:30 Department of Physics, 213 Bragg Commitee Room

The purpose of this programme is to strengthen resilience in individuals.

The programme places personal resilience in the context of the workplace and explores the influences, techniques and approaches that help individuals develop and sustain personal control and resilience at work.

Its emphasis is on the prevention of stress with individuals taking responsibility themselves to approach challenging situations with robust attitudes so they remain resilient and also grow their resilience further.

Wednesday 29 January

12:30
Run with "Physics Flyers" Finished 12:30 - 13:30 Department of Physics

A 35-minute running session following a 5K route, which will be tailored depending on your experience. Whether you are an experienced runner, or completely new to the sport this will be a perfect session to meet like-minded people and enjoy some fresh air!

All abilities welcome from beginners to more experienced runners.

This session will be followed by celebratory tea and biscuits :)

MetCon (Metabolic Conditioning - A high intensity fast paced session) new Finished 16:00 - 16:45 Department of Physics, Bragg Building, Lecture Theatre Foyer Extension Room 155A

Metabolic Conditioning is a method of training that involves a very high work rate, usuing exercises designed to burn more calories during your workout and maximise calories burned, after your workout. These routines are intended to increase your body's storage and delivery of energy for any activity.

Thursday 30 January

12:00
Pilates - Taster Session Finished 12:00 - 12:45 Department of Physics, Bragg Building, Lecture Theatre Foyer Extension Room 155A

Pilates is a method of exercise that consists of low impact flexibility and muscular strength. It emphasises proper postural alignment, core strength and muscle balance, to help improve the 'core muscles' of your body leaving you relaxed and free of tension.

All abilities welcome!

13:00
Yogalates - Taster Session new Finished 13:00 - 13:45 Department of Physics, Bragg Building, Lecture Theatre Foyer Extension Room 155A
