Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland
CHSS have recently relaunched their website with their new vision for supporting people with chest, heart and stroke conditions in Scotland, under the heading of No Life Half Lived. For more information on how they can help please visit their website at www.chss.org.uk

Yoga classes
Disability Shetland have been running a Yoga class for a number of years attended by people who have various health conditions. They have contacted us to see if anyone from the stroke support group would be interested in going along. The class is held on Tuesday mornings from 10am to 11am in Market House, the next block starts on the 18th September.  A lot of the movements are done sitting in a chair and some are done while standing, for those who are able, they also do some exercises on the floor but these can be modified for sitting as well. A few years ago a DVD called “Stretch and Breathe” was released in aid of Disability Shetland and we used it a couple of times at events at Quoys, it gives an idea of what the sessions are like.

Market House Carers Group at Fjara
The Market House Carers Group now meet at the Fjara Cafe Bar on the first Tuesday of each month from 10.30 – 12.00. If you are a carer you are invited to join them for a cuppa, some cake and a blether! The group is open to all unpaid carers and everyone is welcome.
