Parkinson's Walks

Wrap up warm and meet us at the Needle's Eye Cafe  (parking available) for a walk along the glorious coast that will help relax the body and mind, enhancing your connection to the natural environment. Anyone is welcome to join so bring your friends and family too. 

The walk is approx. 40 mins with plenty of stops and pick up points along the way, as well as toilets and places to have a cuppa! Bring water and warmer refreshements will be provided free of charge at the finishing point. 

Tutor: Julie Hand

With a background in fitness and dance and a Reiki II practitioner, Julie’s focus is on the therapeutic aspects of conscious movement and breath to promote health, well-being and peace of mind. 

Qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga and teaching since 2003, she has since spent time studying the principles of Tibetan Yoga and works to incorporate the philosophy of Kum Nye Tibetan Healing Movement into the practice. Julie has focussed her yoga sharing on breath awareness and using it as a tool for improved well-being, relaxation and calming of the nervous system – often working on a one-to-one basis with people suffering with stress and its associated symptoms.

Julie’s teaching style is breath-led, incorporating flow and rhythm, to impart a sense of ‘Being’ in one’s body. Finding her way to the Parkinson’s Dance Science Model in 2016 was a complete joy.

Book your space onto Parkinson's Walk at Hampshire Cultural Trust's Forest Arts Centre, New Milton now!
