NMC Wellbeing Programme
The NMC has provided a fully accessible, holistic approach to therapy for many years. This year this has been formalised this into a yearlong programme with a variety of events, sessions, activities open to the NMC community.
The programme has 4 seasons, each with its own core theme. The first season (Winter) focused on Mental Health
The focus of this season (Spring) is Nutrition and Wellbeing.
This will encompass subjects such as swallowing, diets, and women's/men's health. There will be a selection of speakers from inside and outside NMC.
There will be seated Yoga available every Tuesday afternoon being adapted to suit the NMC community by two excellent Yogis.
We are also going to provide cooking demos for quick and healthy meals you can make at home!
Spring Wellbeing Programme
The Spring programme will begin on Tuesday 13th April and will comprise of:
Seated Yoga and Breathing at 1pm every Tuesday.
Our live exercise sessions with our Therapies team continue every Wednesday at 11:30am.

Winter Wellbeing - Facts and Figures
The winter wellbeing course was a huge success! The knowledge, exercise, mindfulness and music sessions were very popular across our community. This programme has had more uptake than any other in NMC history.
We had 110 individuals sign up to the sessions, with 78 individuals attending at least one session.
More females than males attended with the most popular age being 46-55.
The knowledge sessions run by Bryn and Paul were the highest attendance topping out at 40.
We will be getting feedback from those who attended soon to see how we can improve in the future.
