History of Positive Movement

The basis of the Positive Movement programme was developed with the aid of funding provided by Comic Relief and Hertfordshire Community Foundation with the participation of local older people themselves; the Big Lottery then funded the programme design and the training of the qualified Yoga teachers who now deliver Positive Movement in the community. A pilot ran in 15 community venues in North Herts and Stevenage earlier in the year and following its success we received funding from the Community Wellbeing team at Hertfordshire County Council to enable us to extend this to the rest of Hertfordshire. Further grants from The Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation, Stevenage Community Trust and North Herts District Council have supported the continuation of this programme which is currently being delivered across 34 venues throughout Hertfordshire.
