Give the gift of health and wellness this Christmas

This December we are starting the health kick a month early! Why not already be in the calming frame of mind with all that zen, chilling and eating well before January arrives? Hey, you never know the gloom of January may not be as bad as you think!

Whilst our classes are great for all ages of children they also give an element of health and wellness to our parents and grandparents and anyone else who attends. The perfect gift for your children this Christmas may well be a Kalma Baby, toddler or junior voucher, but is it the perfect gift for you?

In the run up to Christmas we lose our sense of self care (if we had found it in the first place) those busy months can often be filled with stress, anxiety and pressure for many reasons. Whilst we try to get into the spirit of Christmas it can often leave us feeling overwhelmed, guilty and exhausted. The practice of self care has the ability to completely change your outlook on life . It means something different to everyone, but whether you’re treating yourself, or someone else, we have complied a list of 13 ideas to give the best health and wellness gift this Christmas:
