A healthy approach to Christmas

Torbay Weekly

As we come out of a fabulous summer in Our Naturally Inspiring Bay and head toward the Christmas festivities, it is a brilliant time to pursue a positive lifestyle and take advantage of the healthy options on our doorstep, while also feeling good about yourself.

The Paignton Tai Chi Studio is perfect for those looking for a gentle, effective form of exercise with proven health benefits.

The Studio offers a range of classes and individual lessons in Tai Chi, Qigong and Taoist Yoga. All classes are taught by Conrad Robinson, who has over 28 years of experience.  

Tai Chi classes are ideal for those who wish to study the ancient Chinese practises in more depth and to learn the flowing sequences of the Tai Chi Forms.

Motorcise Torbay is a Healthy Living Centre in Lucius Street, which has been under new ownership since July 2019, with extensive refurbishments carried out to include wooden flooring throughout and redecorated.

The original and only motorised Gym in Torbay comes with separate ladies and gents exercise suites for privacy and comfort.

All machines are designed by Physiotherapists and are suitable for all strengths and Mobility. Open to all ages, these are ideal for Osteo Arthritis/Rheumatoid Arthritis/Heart problems/High blood Pressure/Joint/ Muscle pain and Obesity.

Two or three 30-minute sessions a week is all you need to change your life, but you have unlimited use of the facilities with your membership. Tel: 01803 294080

After the healthy exploits, treat yourself with a trip to Coast Hair Design on Paignton’s Manor Corner.

Opened in February 2017, the salon then expanded to five stylists and, after a large refurb, moved into the larger and more stylish salon in June of this year.

Coast Hair Design is open six days a week, Monday to Saturday, plus two late nights on Thursdays and Fridays, with a team of superb stylists.

Owner Laura Forster said: “I’m extremely proud of how the Salon has grown and could not ask for a more professional, talented team, who help make Coast Hair Design a loved salon.
