Thu May 13th

National Army Museum-Close Shaves & Lucky Escapes Online 10:30
Free, but booking is required. Click this link: Lucky Escapes
Join Justin Saddington curator from the National Army Museum, for an exclusive talk for u3a members.
----- Using objects once owned by great men and leaders, he will consider the possible impact that the death of these men would have had on history. What would have happened if King William III had died at the Battle of the Boyne in 1690? A piece of blood-stained lace worn by the King at the battle attests to one of several close shaves he experienced that day.
Through the collection, Justin will also demonstrate how a soldier’s world view and beliefs were shaped by the constant threat of injury and death.

This Zoom workshop is bringing together a diverse group of u3a yoga group leaders / teachers from across the UK.

-----They will be sharing their insights and experience of Yoga in the u3a and answering all the questions about yoga that you have never been able to ask before, like:

  • What is yoga – I’ve heard there different kinds?
  • Are there benefits – if so, what are these?
  • Can anyone do yoga – at any age, any shape, even men?
  • Where would I begin?
  • What do I need: a mat, a chair, blocks, straps, yoga socks, Lycra leggings, a sense of humour?
  • What happens in u3a yoga groups?
  • Is yoga hard - do I have to be able to touch my toes or stand on my head?
  • Is yoga safe?
  • If I have injuries, ailments or conditions – will yoga make these better or worse?

If you would like to raise a question but would rather not do this in person on the day send you question now to : Yoga Questions and we will endeavour to answer as many of the questions as we can on the day.
