Cobwebbe Shaker All About Me Continued

I knew for my business to succeed, I needed to get my name out there, so I borrowed 300 from the credit union. Lynettes loan paid for business cards, the insurance she needed to deliver exercises and the remainder has gone towards a website. I named the company Cobweb Shaker because what I do helps people to heal themselves through getting back to basics laughter, movement and shaking away the days problems, said Lynette, who decided to set up the company after running workshops to find out what women in the area said they needed. She now gives workshops once a month at the Holistic Centre in Newport, as well as delivering her sessions in sheltered accommodation. Her classes include everything from chair aerobics, to relaxation and breathing techniques and laughter yoga, after she trained in the induced laughter technique. The oldest person in one of my workshops has been a 101-year-old woman, said Lynette, who has been nominated for a Health Champion Award by Communities First and was named Heart hero by the British Heart Foundation in 2012. Its about regaining that childhood ability to laugh and have fun we sing and play percussion with medicine spoons. You Can Get It If You Really Want by Jimmy Cliff is a favourite, but we can dance to anything with a beat. Lynette has now almost paid off the Credit Union loan she took out to launch her feelgood business.
