“I found it extremely helpful. We have started introducing it into our lives with our kids”

Looking after your body is a no brainer! We all know the theory, eat well, sleep well, don’t smoke, don’t drink too much, exercise etc. yet few of us do it effectively and when we are under pressure it is often the first thing to go. This interactive course explores why physical resilience is crucial to overall wellbeing, enables you to assess and reflect on your personal physical resilience and explores tricks and techniques to build it when time, or inclination, is in short supply.
