Recently, I shared that we were working on a way that we could continue to bring our Mini Mermaid programme to girls during these unprecedented times. I’m happy to say that, in working with Nicky Adams and her team at Full of Beans Fitness, we’re now able to offer Mini Mermaids at Home, an online experience that combines our fun curriculum with a wealth of online activities from Full of Beans Fitness.
Wait….what?! A running club? Online?
Absolutely. At our core, we’ve always been about helping young girls discover and embrace physical activity as well as mindfulness practices. We want to engage those girls at risk of stopping physical activity, by creating a fun, judgement-free environment, in which girls feel safe exploring different types of movement.
As part of that, we want to help girls understand, acknowledge and manage how they’re feeling, be kind to themselves in that moment, and consider how physical activity can play a role in that process. This is so important, now more than ever. It's hard when life changes and there's a new reality to navigate. No school. No access to friends. No certainty. It's frustrating, a bit frightening, and tiring.
As a community, country and world, these feelings of anxiety and uncertainty can be overwhelming. This is why we want to be able to help girls and their families to navigate through these feelings, along with supporting our community to stay active.
So alongside the team at Full Of Beans Fitness, we are launching Mini Mermaids at Home. It’s Mini Mermaids with a twist! We are really looking forward to working with Full of Beans as we manage this new world that we are living in. You can find all the details on how to sign up here or email Corrie@fullofbeansfitness.co.uk for dates and availability.
Hope you and all of yours are staying safe.
