It's the Good Liverpool Wellness Week!
We understand how vital it is to look after our wellbeing, especially at the moment. It is time now, more than ever, to look after the mental & physical health of not only ourselves, but our family, friends & neighbours.
Which is why we have launched our very first Wellness Week!
We have teamed up with some of our city's best health & wellbeing businesses to bring an amazing week full of exercises, healthy food, yoga and self-care!
Throughout the week, we will have interviews from local businesses and healthy recipes to keep you feeling fresh.
Join us on our Instagram - @good_liverpool - every day this week as we bring you another business with fresh workouts!

Tuesday 12 January - Wellness Garden
Susie Ferry created the Wellness Garden to form a space where she could help people rehabilitate their mind and body. With over 21 years experience working in numerous gyms as a fitness instructor, personal trainer, sports massager, Reiki therapist, Pilates and yoga teacher.
"I found the importance of helping people become aware of their day to day movement patterns and injury histories is just as important as acknowledging your mental and emotional state, as our state of mind has a huge effect on our bodies physically and chemically."
The Wellness Garden allows Susie Ferry to bring together her 21 years of knowledge of anatomy, rehabilitation, mindfulness, movement, group teaching and personal training into smaller, more personal classes & private sessions.
Join us at 1:30pm on Tuesday 12 January for a takeover by Susie Ferry! For more on Wellness Garden and the amazing work they are doing, click here!

Friday 15 January - Yoga Bumps & Babies with Jenni Jones
Jenni Jones has taught yoga since 2000. The birth of her son in 2004 inspired Jenni to specialise in pregnancy yoga and then going on to train as a doula/birth assistant.
“I hope that in my classes, women are welcomed and supported and celebrated to be simply themselves. The only thing I ask is that we gather with open hearts and minds and a willingness to let go and take space to be just that...true to ourselves.”
Join us at 9:30am on Friday 15 January for a mindfulness and breathing session to have you feeling calm and ready for a great weekend! For more on Yoga Bumps & Babies, Jenni Jones and how to get involved, click here!
