WALK THE TALK: STROLL FROM EXETER QUAY TO DOUBLE LOCKS

Posted on behalf of Paul Read

THE WALKIE TALKIE MEETUP


What have Ernest Hemingway, Henry Thoreau, Friedrich Nietzsche and Einstein in common? No, not poor choice in facial hair styles…BUT a sneaky, healthy and unorthodox device for resolving problems and fostering creativity.




Part of the Indie Content Philosophy has always been to explore ways of working outside the office/studio in order to stimulate other perspectives and other approaches. 




So for this special Meetup - we will be Walking the Talk. You don’t have to have been to our meetings before or have a particular issue in mind. It all happens as part of the process. 




Meet up at Puerto Lounge Bar on the Quay at 11.30am. From there we will be strolling up to Double Locks. Using the well tested - walkie-talkie approach: Allowing the motion of the body to gradually loosen up the ideas, relax the muscles, regulate the breath and explore what is both within and without, we can observe what happens around us and between us. Plus, we can feed the swans (not really, don't feed the swans!)




It’s a simple, flexible and proven idea. Come along and discover another way of working altogether. 




Dogs, canoes, boats, all welcome. Even people with strange facial hair too.




BRING.....


*Bottled water 


*Walking shoes


*hat


*Problems, ideas, projects unresolved....


*Clean Ears (to listen with)

THURSDAY EXETER CLUBBERCISE 18/07/2019

♥ What happens in a Clubbercise class? ♥



After checking in/payment you'll be given a set of flashing rave glow sticks, these are reusable so much more environmentally friendly than the single use ones. We darken the room, get the disco lights going and start with a simple warm up routine. Then we work up a sweat dancing to floorfillers from 90′s rave to recent dance anthems. The routines are easy-to-follow and always have high or low impact options. It's all about fun, not about perfection. Take it to your level, keep it simple and enjoy the music.

What are the benefits of Clubbercise classes?

You get to dance to your favourite tracks without a hangover the next day!

Dancing in the dark with disco lights means you can really let go

Dancing with rave glow sticks gives your arms a good work out

You'll burn around 500 calories in an hour


You'll tone your muscles

Do I need to be an experienced dancer?

Definitely not! We deliberately make our routines easy-to-follow so you can relax and enjoy it rather than worrying about getting the steps wrong.


£6 per session and every tenth class will be free of charge.


Resuable battery glow sticks will be available to purchase at £4 per pair.


Please arrive early to complete a registration / health form, get your loyalty card signed and buy your sticks, remember to wear sensible clothing / footwear and bring some water!
