Local business has roots firmly in health and well-being
A West Midlands-based business, promoting health and well-being, kicks off this academic year with new classes for Warwick University staff and students taking time out for rest and relaxation.
The Yummy Movement’s Vinyasa Yoga for all abilities will be delivered through Warwick Sport lunchtime on Tuesdays and after work Thursdays – allowing attendees to relax, enjoy a community workout and take some much needed ‘me’ time.
Selina Welter, who founded The Yummy Movement, and leads the classes says:
''In our age of consumerism and materialism, it’s time to take a step back and pay attention to the simpler things in life. For many people, the first step to a healthier lifestyle starts with a simple change and yoga classes are perfect for that.”
Movement, healthy food and sustainability are the central ethoses for The Yummy Movement, a business based on an informed and balanced vegan lifestyle, coupled with exercise and conscious breathing.
There are many excellent ways to enrich our lives; little changes that can make us feel happier, more content and satisfied with our achievements. Breathing is the essence of our daily life, and attention to it connects us with our inner self and calms our mind, body and soul. Vinyasa Yoga is a great way to start a healthy lifestyle and learn how to breathe consciously.”
Selina has big plans to expand the business, which started life two years ago with financial support and business mentoring from Enterprise at Warwick. Videos and recipes are in the pipeline for the next months, as well as classes for members of Warwick Climbing Centre. There are also plans for guided video classes for those unable to attend in person, but would still like to reap the benefits of The Yummy Movement in their own time. Reaching out to parents on campus with relaxed sessions, as well as offering well-being packages for conference attendees are also on the horizon.
The Yummy Movement Vinyasa Yoga sessions begin in week 3 (week commencing 17 October) for 8 weeks (through to mid-December). Classes take place at lunch time (12.30pm – 1.30pm) on Tuesdays and 6pm – 7.30pm on Thursdays. Classes can be booked at Warwick Sport and staff can use their WLA vouchers for courses.
