Covid-19 Update – Classes Postponed
KLEA originally planned to restart all classes (including gymnastics) by the end of September 2020, but unfortunately due to the increase of Covid-19 infections and lockdowns, as well as current government guidelines severely limiting the number of people who can meet indoors, the KLEA board have unanimously decided to postpone all classes until January 2021.
Obviously we’re all frustrated that we’ve had to delay the classes further, but when it come to health and safety we’d rather err on the side of caution.
We look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
Kilmarnock Leisure Education Association are delighted to report that we have been awarded funding from the Corra Foundation for an exciting new project in East Ayrshire.
This funding will be used to run a Teen Yoga program which will focus on improving the mental wellbeing and general mental health of young people in the East Ayrshire area.
Our aim is that young people will become equipped with a toolkit of skills, some or all of which they could incorporate into their everyday lives and use to maintain good mental health in the future. Experiencing the power of postures, breathing techniques or mindfulness to change their perspective will empower them to take control of their own wellbeing.
Classes will incorporate a mixture of gentle physical excercise, breathing exercises and relaxation, all of which are recognised to reduce stress and improve sleep, as well as improving strength, flexibility and balance.
Classes will be free to attend and all equipment will be provided, and they will be taught by Susan Staddon, our yoga instructor who is specifically qualified to teach yoga and mindfulness to teenagers.
