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!
