Tutor; Paul Boizot
A WEA (Workers Educational Association) course.

How can you help yourself to be healthy? How do lifestyles and attitudes affect health?  We will look at diet and nutrition, posture, relaxation, stress, complementary therapies, and more. We will also discuss the background to our ideas about health - what is health, where do we get our knowledge or beliefs about health from? Students' own ideas and experiences are expected to contribute a lot to the discussion.

The course is discussion-based, with also some breathing, movement and relaxation, including some yoga-based postures and stretches - but nothing too energetic! please let the tutor know before the course if you are unable to do gentle stretches, or unable to get down to lie on the floor.

There will be flexibility to reflect students' interests and preferences. A session of circle dance is an option if the group wishes. (TBC at the event if the room is suitable).

Loose comfortable clothing would be best for doing stretches, and a yoga mat or blanket may be useful.

The venue is Hinsley Hall, in Headingley. It is only one and a half miles from the centre of Leeds, and is set in four acres of grounds. It is easily accessible by public transport and has plenty of car parking. See

About me  I have been an Adult Education teacher since 1992. I teach a variety of subjects relating to health, personal development, politics and current affairs, and dance and music. I am a qualified aromatherapist, a Circle Dance teacher and choreographer, and a keen gardener. My approach is informal, questioning, and sometimes humorous. I was born in 1953 and have a BA in Politics.
