A bit of seasonal Sanity on Sunday

Have you bought your 2020 Christmas jumper yet? Perhaps you’ve already starting wearing it?

Full disclosure here from June – she’s never bought one, never worn one and has no intention of ever doing so…

But she couldn’t help being intrigued by this recent post on Rosalyn Palmer‘s website – and what perfect timing, with Ros back on the show this weekend!

If like her you want to find out what Ros has to say about Christmas jumpers being all about connection, make sure you’re listening in this weekend, when she’ll be on the phone to the studio to explain all.

It’s part of her regular Sanity on Sunday slot, starting just after 11.10am, when she’ll also have an update on her recent move to Lincolnshire and how she’s been adapting her coaching and wellbeing business during these strange times.

Make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday for all this and more from the Girls Around Town

But what’s the biggest question of all and the first one June will be asking when Ros joins her?

It’s obvious really – even though she’ll only be heard and not seen, is Ros sitting there at the other end of the phone wearing her own seasonal sweater??

Zooming in on health and hospitality

Things were very different when Johanna Thompson first joined the Girls Around Town to talk about the meetings and events organised by the Wellness Network for people working in the health and wellbeing industry.

Back in September 2019, she and Kayleigh Langley were both in the studio chatting face to face with June, something that’s definitely off the agenda these days of course.

But that’s not stopping her bringing everyone up to date with the group’s activities this Sunday, when she’ll be on the phone from just after 11.20am with all the latest news…

Like many groups in the region, around the country and across the world, their regular meetings these days are now held online. And they’re on Sunday mornings too, from 10am to 11am, so no doubt Johanna will be talking about the one she hosted while June was busy bringing you the first hour of your favourite weekend show here on 107.8FM!

If you work in the hospitality business, you’ll definitely want to hear what she has to say about new meetings in the pipeline designed specifically for you. With special guest speakers sharing ideas and offering support, they could be just what you need right now and they’ll be absolutely free to join.

Make sure you’re tuned in or listening online to find out more about these and other upcoming Wellness Network meetings…

And don’t miss the latest news about a very special event taking place on Sunday afternoon, when Radio Newark joins forces with the town and district councils, local artists and local schools to bring you live on air and online coverage of Newark’s Virtual Christmas Lights Switch On!

The right mat-itude

How much do you know about the different kinds of yoga?

You’ve probably heard of Hot Yoga, maybe even of Aerial Yoga but what about Yoga NidraTRX Yoga or Hot Vinyasa Flow?

Someone who knows all about these – and more! – is Yoga Squad‘s Caroline Martin, who joins June in the second hour of this weekend’s show…

A fitness teacher for over 25 years, Caroline discovered hot yoga in 2014 when she went to a local class with a friend.

From the very first session she was hooked and, attending classes both before and after work and at the weekends to get her fix, soon noticed the difference it made both physically and mentally.

It wasn’t long before she decided to take the next step, signing up to Hot Power Yoga training in London, and started teaching weekly classes the very day after completing the course.

Now certified in both Aerial Yoga and Restorative Aerial too, Caroline recently began sharing her passion with clients here in Newark, where she’s based in the building that was once home to the town’s Millgate Museum, overlooking the River Trent.

Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online from 11.20am on Sunday to hear more about her own fitness journey and what Yoga Squad has to offer, whether you’re a beginner or an advanced yogi…

And don’t forget to join June from 10am for more of the news, views and music too brought to you every week on Girls Around Town!
