Two local wellness professionals have joined forces to offer free group sessions in Leeds city centre. Taking place on the last Thursday of each month, the groups are designed to offer support and guidance to those seeking to improve various aspects of their wellbeing. The sessions will cover a different topic each month, with experts providing useful tips and information.
Run by Jordan from Plexus Wellbeing and Sophia from Apollo Nutrition, they will be informal sessions during which attendees will be encouraged to think about small changes they can make to their everyday lives which may improve both their physical and mental wellbeing.
Sophia from Apollo Nutrition said:
“I’ve worked 1-1, in group settings, schools and corporate situations for nearly 4 years now. Alongside my nutrition and personal trainer qualifications, I also have qualifications in mental health and eating disorders. It became apparent to me during lockdowns and the peak of the Covid pandemic that many people were unsure of how to support their own well-being and didn’t know where to turn. This is where my idea for the sessions came from. Our sessions will offer free support for everyone in Leeds who wants to get involved. Exactly what the city needs!”
Jordan from Plexus Wellbeing added:
“Through Plexus, I’ve run numerous community-focused networking and social events and, for the past 12 months, have been helping businesses within the community to find new opportunities and grow through collaborations. I wanted to set up these sessions because I felt alone and isolated during the pandemic and I knew there would be many others who have been feeling the same. I want to help people learn and practice the little things that can make a big difference to their health and wellbeing. I hope people will feel more fulfilled from our sessions; feel supported and cared for. I also hope they learn something new about themselves as that’s precisely happened to me a lot on my wellness journey.”
The first hour-long session will take place at 6 pm tomorrow at Better Days in Leeds’ Grand Arcade
