New Zumba Gold
6 Jul 21

Do you feel the nCandy Minshall, Zumba Gold instructoreed to exercise but don't know where to start?  Join us every Friday for Zumba Gold with our instructor Candy Minshall. 

Candy's been teaching Zumba for ten years and qualified to teach Zumba Gold six years ago.  Previous jobs have ranged from Teaching Assistant to Estate Agent, but exercise has always been her passion and she now does 1 to 1 sessions as a qualified personal training as well as Zumba, Core, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and Strong.   

Although Candy has travelled all over the country, she's proud to be a born-and-bred Bristolian and now lives locally with her husband, two teenagers and a beagle called Tilly.  She says "I am really excited about working with f2g, bringing some great music and moves into the group on a regular basis". 

Meet Candy this Friday at 65 High Street for the first in our weekly Zumba class, from 2pm to 3pm.  All exercises can be done seated. 

In other changes to our programme

  • The Sensory Garden project has moved to 3pm, starting immediately after Zumba Gold.
  • The Zentangle workshop will continue to run on the 1st Wednesday of the month.  Zentangle is a form of artistic medication which is easy to learn, relaxing and fun.  You don't need to be good at drawing - we will teach you the steps to creating your own beautiful, unique and personal work of art.
  • The Paint Together session will run on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Wednesday of the month.
  • Also on Wednesdays, we open our Hooks and Knitting Needles Cafe.  This replaces the Coffee and Chat session.
  • CrafTea and Coffee is running as usual, every Monday starting at 11am. 

All sessions will now incur a fee of £5 (except for the Garden project), but if you're attending three or more a month, why not save money and become a member?  Membership costs just £10 per month and, in addition, you'll receive a membership card, a free lanyard and a free t-shirt on joining.       

To check dates and timings of all sessions for the next two weeks, go to the calendar on the bottom of the About page.
