Well Living Workshops

Come along to our monthly Well Living Workshops. Each workshop will focus on a particular topic and include educational talks and discussion (delivered by health & wellbeing team), as well as taster sessions and community partner information.


This Well Living Workshop focuses on all thing’s physical activity, including what it means to be physically active, what the recommended amount is for each individual and how you can tailor this to your own needs/interests. We will be focusing on practical tools for becoming more physically active and exploring what is available in Angus, including taster sessions from ANGUSalive and some of the fantastic local sports clubs.

The connections between nature and our wellbeing are well recognised, both the physical and mental, which is why we will be focusing on this topic during these workshops. We will look at the benefits of spending time in nature, how to enhance the benefits of being in nature and practices which can be utilised to achieve this. We will have taster sessions on the day, including mindful movement which is perfect for practicing outdoors.

What Our Members Say

Before starting with ANGUSalive, I could barely walk 50 meters without sitting down for a rest and after doing the programme for a while, my physical fitness, and importantly, my mental health improved beyond belief.

Ranald McLeay, BE ACTIVE...Live Well Member

I am a type 2 diabetic on insulin and didn’t do any kind of sport before I started the BE ACTIVE…live well classes. After starting the classes my diabetic consultant was so impressed with me he reduced the levels of insulin I take. Then Covid 19 started and with no classes and isolation I had a real problem controlling my blood sugars and the levels of insulin I had to take doubled.

Now that we are back, I go to 4-5 Aqua classes, 1 Circuit and 2 Gym classes a week and there has been a major improvement in my overall fitness and control of my blood sugar. The instructor is also aware of each individual’s health requirements and is able to give them great satisfaction in what they have achieved. This is what makes the classes so enjoyable.

When I first started the Live Well classes, I wasn’t sure it would be any help to me at all as I use crutches to walk even a few steps. But with perseverance, and the help of the instructor, who helps you create a course tailored to your medical needs, things have improved. Not only my body, but my mind as well.

I would recommend it to anyone. The people doing the classes are all friendly and happy to see new faces. There is no bias as we all have our own problems and offer support, advice and a chance to have a few laughs!
