Organisation

KICC Active Lothian

Details
Many people living with long term conditions find it difficult to access appropriate mainstream exercise and fitness classes and as a result, are unable to remain healthy and manage their condition.

KICC Active Lothian is an on-going project. We are facilitating the establishment of accessible, self-management community based exercise programmes in Lothian.

YOGA

Yoga is a holistic exercise focusing on stretching and breathing exercises which have seen results in improved physical and psychological states. Through yoga we develop awareness and improve mental performance and emotional wellbeing.

A useful guide to yoga can be found at http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/fitness/Pages/yoga.aspx.

Yoga has been shown to help a diverse range of ailments. For information from the British Wheel of Yoga on studies into the benefits of yoga please see http://www.bwy.org.uk/yoga-can-improve-common-health-problems/ and a newspaper article on the benefits of yoga at http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/health/diet-fitness/article3785995.ece.
