Get Active:

BtB Stamina Workout with Lift the Lid. Lift the Lid CIC Director, Matt Jefferies, has always had a passion for helping to lift the lid on the potential of young people, especially anyone deemed to have ‘special educational needs’. With Matt on a Tuesday evening you’ll get a warm up and warm down and the chance to choose from a carousel of physical activity:  Circuit training, Hula hoop, Zumba and Jogging. All to help you stay active over lockdown.

Fitness Instructor, Sophie Carr is going to take us through our moves every Saturday – the following classes will run in rotation:

  • Yoga: Balances, strength poses and flow sequences.
  • Zumba: A fun and energetic dance session great for staying fit and strong.
  • Hula-hoop: Helps you get strong and improve coordination and you don’t even need a hoop to join in.

Get Involved

Meet Jem and Emma, Safe-Space Mindfulness Trainers. Mindfulness has many benefits, it may help you focus, feel happier, and more at ease. It can also help you manage your worries and could help you sleep. Emma and Jem would love to meet you, teach you some mindfulness practices and have some fun!

Get Creative

Jam Buddies: Music making with friends. Led by Rachel and the Turning Tides Project.

Creative Movement with Dance in Devon – 10 sessions from 5th January.

Get Together

Mark Thorneywork AKA Chef T and DJ Mark T for the now infamous LOCKDOWN DISCO: “It makes me happy to work with young people, I love their honesty and energy. I myself like to try and keep fit, get outside in the great outdoors, love Leeds United and follow them passionately and I LOVE TO COOK, after training many years ago as a chef before I became a Youth Worker. Life can be such fun and injustice should always be challenged. Remember you cannot fail if you do not give up – I am dyslexic and face challenges everyday but will not fail although it might take me a bit longer.”  

Cook Together: A new session with Mark T. On Wednesdays we will follow a recipe – we will email you an ingredient list in advance. On Thursday’s it’s FREESTYLE the idea is that everyone brings some ingredients they have at home, talk about them with the group and use them to make something. The session will end with everyone eating what they have created. From pasta or a sarnie to fruit salad or a smoothie – it is a free style cooking session which you will do with friends. We think it will be a creative and fun way to explore food and socialise together!

Lifeworks Talent Show: We all calling on everyone to be part of our Talent Contest! We need people to help shape the whole project – come and be part of the planning, prize gathering, promotion, judging panel. Or come and practice a routine and perform – Tell jokes, sing a song, Hula-hoop, perform a magic trick or show us any other talent that you might have!
