What’s your New Year’s resolution?
Written by Tracey Dean
The New Year is here, a time to reflect and think about how to make this the best year ever! If instead of giving something up for New Year you’d like to try something new Cambridge has a lot to offer. Whether relaxing more, trying a new class or giving back to the community is top of your resolutions list here are some suggestions for what you can do in the city.
CamYoga (www.camyoga.co.uk) have a number of yoga studios located in Cambridge offering over 100 classes a week including hot yoga and classes especially for beginners. Yoga can help you feel more relaxed by letting go of built up tension and increasing your mental health wellbeing.
If yoga isn’t for you there’s also a new form of relaxation in Cambridge available at the Art of Float (www.artoffloat.com). Here you can spend 60 minutes in a flotation pod floating in water to relieve the body of stress resulting in you feeling calm and super relaxed.
TRY A NEW CLASS
The award-winning Cambridge Cookery School (www.cambridgecookeryschool.com) offer a wide range of cookery classes such as healthy eating, beginner bread making, sushi masterclasses, and many more. Improve and hone your cookery skills in their beautiful Scandinavian style kitchen and enjoy a sit down meal with wine. You also take away a full recipe pack to put what you’ve learnt into action at home.
Hills Road Sixth form College (www.hillsroad.ac.uk/adult) also offer evening classes in a host of recreational, academic and vocational subjects. From learning a new language to interior design there’s something for everyone with classes starting throughout January.
Last but by no means least if you’re looking to give back to the community this year volunteering could be for you. The Cambridge and District Volunteering Centre (www.cam-volunteer.org.uk ) have information about over 300 volunteering opportunities.
If donating is more for you why not donate to your local foodbank (www.cambridgecity.foodbank.org.uk). Take a look at their website to see the multiple food drop off points throughout Cambridge and a list of the items they urgently need to help people in need.
