New Yoga Class for Mothers and Babies

A new spin on yoga has begun in California, Mother and Baby Yoga classes! It includes strengthening and flexibility exercises and provides new mothers the chance to get back in tune with their bodies after the stresses of labour. Course teacher, Michelle McAllister takes the mothers and babies through a series of activities, such as breathing, stretching, positioning and curling and was inspired to do so after completing training in San Francisco.

Hi-tech study into exercise and type 1 diabetes

Physical activity is an essential part of managing Type 1 diabetes and protecting against the serious complications of the condition such as heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, blindness and amputation. We hope that this study will equip people with Type 1 diabetes with the information they need to make pragmatic decisions about physical activity and how it is likely to affect their blood glucose control.
