Free yoga class for carers at the Lido May 23rd & discuss SEN Green Paper after

Don't forget that the second in a series of relaxation classes for carers of disabled children and young adults is happening at Brockwell Lido on Monday May 23rd from 11am - 12:30pm. This second class on May 23rd will feature 'Introduction to Yoga' and will focus on Hatha Yoga.


 If you're interested in these free sessions or know someone who could use some respite, ring Contact A Family Lambeth on 020 7326 5270 to hold a place, or you can do so by speaking to Lido staff on 020 7274 3088. Alternatively you can contact CAF Lido project leader Kate Burman by email:


After the yoga session parents can discuss their response to the SEN Green Paper. This Green Paper could mean the biggest reform in the education and health support for children with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities in 30 years! Opponents say there has not been sufficient consultation!



Two new beginner Pole Fit courses start at the Lido on Thurs 2nd June (from 6:15-7:45pm) and Fri 3rd June (from 8pm-9.30pm) taught by Beccie Savidge. The course runs for 6 weeks. Course cost is £120 for the six weeks and each lesson will last for 90 minutes. Pole Fit is an exercise and dance class incorporating the use of a pole. It improves flexibility, muscle tone and general fitness.


There will be 8 poles set up, with a maximum of 12 students in each class. This means that each student will be spending a minimum of 45 minutes on a pole (which we're told is exhausting!). Beccie will teach you how to climb, spin, and spin links - in various styles to suit all tastes.


Each class will feature an hour on the pole and the last 30 minutes doing a dynamic and calorie bashing stretching routine. The aim of the routine is to deeply improve your posture, your flexibility to prevent sporting injuries, and to get you down towards the splits ... great for a summer party trick!


Free Relaxation Classes for Carers


"Great compassion penetrates into the marrow of the bone." -- Nagarjuna



Are you a carer in the community of a child or young adult and feel overburdened and overwhelmed?


Two charities, in association with Fusion, are offering three free relaxation classes for carers of children and young adults. These will happen at Brockwell Lido on Monday May 9th, Monday May 23rd, and Monday June 6th. Every class is on from 11am - 12:30pm. The sessions are designed as respite for people who care for children or young adults who are frail or ill, or have a physical, mental health or learning disability, and do so without receiving financial compensation. The sessions will be about helping people learn some wonderful survival skills.
