Parkinson's Walks - Breath & Collect

Wednesday 16 October, 1.30-3pm. FREE

Breath & Collect...moments of stretch, reflection and collection of plastic waste or pebbles on our beaches.

Parkinson's Walks funded by Tesco's Bags of Help Campaign.

To optimise your experience of walking in our glorious landscape, we’ll help you reduce muscle tension and increase free flowing energy with breath awareness exercises and gentle breath-led stretches before and during the walks. This will help relax the body and mind, enhancing your connection to the natural environment.


What to wear and bring?

Wrap up warm and bring your family for these all inclusive walks suitable for anyone. Bring water but refreshments will be provided free of charge at the finishing point.

How long does the walk last?

Approx 40 mins, there are plenty of stops and pick up points along the way as well as toilets and places to have a cuppa!

Where do we meet?

Needle's Eye Cafe: 10-19 Hurst Rd, Milford On Sea SO41 0PY

Is there car parking?

Yes! At the cafe; our start and end point of the walk.


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 focused 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.
