Sport and physical activity encourage positivity, stimulate brain activity and contribute to good health.

The Mindful Sport programme aims to improve the mental health of people in the community through social physical activity sessions.

The activities help people who may be experiencing anxiety, stress, depression and other similar conditions. 

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we have suspended a number of the sport sessions run by Sports Development to ensure the safety of participants, staff and volunteers. We are restarting the sessions as and when it is safe and feasible to do so. 

Live online classes

We have a range of live online fitness classes, including mindful yoga, for you to keep moving and promote wellbeing at home. Go to Bedford Sport Live for the full timetable of free classes

To keep updated with any changes please sign up to our email bulletin. Thank you for participating in our sessions and hope to see you all again when sessions resume.
