Our Positive Impact


“So, to sum up, it’s been 12 months and I am moving so much better in my everyday life. I feel more comfortable to try new types of movement and I’ve created a weekly habit of exercise. My professional support team – Dr, psychologist etc – are very pleased that I have been able to maintain this habit for the year.” (Clinically diagnosed major depression / general & social anxiety)
