Starting Tuesday 15 September
Let’s Walk: Walking for Health, and for Fun is a weekly group walk starting from the Swansea Wellbeing Centre (on the corner of Walter Road and Burman Street, SA1 5PQ) and exploring the local green spaces. Each week we will head for a different venue, for example Victoria Park and the beach, the Vetch Community Gardens, St James Gardens, Cwmdonkin Park and Rosehill Quarry. There’ll be a chance to exchange information and knowledge about health and wellbeing, mindfulness, the natural world, and of course Swansea local history – whatever interests you.
The first session is a free taster and is open to all.
After the first session the walks are in blocks of 6, payable in advance, at £7 per session. For health and safety reasons, the group is capped at 10.
Brigid Haines is an experienced walks leader who is most at home in the great outdoors. She feels privileged to live in Swansea, a green city by the sea with its marvellous parks and coastline. She believes passionately in the mental and physical health benefits of exercising in nature: it not only benefits the body, it also calms the mind. Exercising in nature does not have to mean sweat and tears, it is for everyone, whatever their natural pace. And a walking pace is perfectly suited to really noticing our natural surroundings; it promotes mindfulness. Walking together in a group also promotes a sense of connection to our local community.
Brigid is also an accredited Funerals Celebrant with Humanists UK.
