Successful weight loss has much less to do with calories, portions sizes, temptations and treats than it does with understanding how the body works and - most importantly - mindset. It is possible to shed that excess weight and, more than that, it is possible to keep it gone. 

We are delighted to let you know that our nutritionist Melanie Ryan will launch her new 6-week Health & Weight Loss Course "Sensible Weight Loss for Life" in January 2018. It will start on Wednesday, 24 January, and the first two sessions will be completely free of charge, so you can try before you buy. The remaining 4 sessions will be charged at £115. However, places are limited, so please make sure to register your interest if you would like to win a place in the group.

It will consist of 6 sessions, starting on Wednesday, 24 January and finishing on 7 March, with a break at half-term. It’ll run from 7:00 pm until 8:30 pm. Only the first session will take 1.5 hours. Subsequent ones will start at 7:15 and finish at 8:20-ish, with time for weigh-in at the beginning or end.

Release & Restore - The Myofascial Mobilisation Class

Hosted by: Kristin Loeer
Time & date: 22 February 2018 at 18:30-20:00
Hosted at: The Body Matters, Business Land, 8 Madeira Ave, Southend on Sea, SS9 3EB
Price: £15pp.

This popular class will mobilise and relax your socks off. You will be guided through some simple breathing and relaxation exercises to calm your system, find focus and tune into the state of your connective tissue. We often believe our muscles to be tight and try to stretch them off. Yet we do not seem to get much effect from all the stretching. Most of the time it is actually the fascia that our muscles are wrapped up in that is tight and inflexible and makes us feel stiff, achy and immobile.

This class will take you through a range of release and mobilisation exercises that will reach and target your connective tissue in ways you never have been able to with conventional stretches and exercises. You will find these movements and releases comfortable, satisfying, relaxing. Afterwards you will feel powerfully different as you experience a much healthier state of your connective tissue all around and through your body.

Everyone is welcome. If you suffer from injuries or health conditions contact Kristin for advice if this class is suitable for you.
