Why not come along to a talk by Eoin Ryan, Coach Trainer, author and speaker to help keep the motivation going and change within your life.

Ask yourself the question ‘Am I happy with the current circumstances ?’ Eoin’s talk will concentrate on the mind-set of getting you to understand how you are motivated, in other words what triggers you in the first place and how to keep your motivation going knowing this and this will give you a much better chance of success.

Nicola Foxe of Yo Yo Yoga gives yoga sessions for toddlers, children and parents. She has given toddler yoga story-time sessions as part of the baby book clubs in library branches this October. Her toddler yoga story-time sessions involve stories, songs and yoga poses. YoY o Yoga Story-Telling: A yoga class is like a good story - it has a beginning, a middle and an end. Storytelling is a wonderful way for children to engage in literacy and language activities. Yoga enhances flexibility, strength, coordination and body awareness, and can help improve concentration while instilling a sense of calm. Using popular titles such as 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' and 'The Gruaffalo', yoga storytelling combines both yoga and storytelling helping children to benefit in even more ways in a fun, interactive way.
