Way of Life have worked with MANOR fitness to host a four-day wellbeing programme for residents at The Gessner Build to Rent scheme during Mental Health Awareness Week. With wellbeing a part of the offer to Way of Life residents, the partnership gives them an opportunity to nurture both their mental and physical health.

The wellbeing programme offered several classes including breathwork and meditation workshops and gym classes designed to equip residents with the tools to understand the link between mental and physical wellbeing. The programme finished with an ice bath workshop on The Gessner’s landscaped gardens with Artur Paulins of the Breathwork Academy.

Residents were offered special programming during the week focused on wellbeing, as well as regular events and exclusive offers via the Way of Life portal from like-minded partners.

We feel strongly about supporting the mental health of our community and it’s great that Way of Life are aligned with this mission They are really putting physical and mental wellbeing at the forefront of their proposition and it’s making a positive impact.”
