Forever Young is a unique course for older people that fuses parkour and dance for fitness and well-being. It brings together local people over the age of 60 to explore, create and learn movement in a safe and structured outdoor environment lead by qualified professionals. With a focus on play, connecting and adapting to our surroundings - community and self expression is at the heart of this program.
The five 5 biggest illnesses in older people are dementia, heart attack, arthritis, parkinson’s and diabetes. Forever Young helps to prevent and/or reduce progression of these as well as targeting fall prevention.
The sessions run once a week over a term from 10:30am-12:30pm on Tuesdays at Kagyu Samye Dzong Centre (15 Spa Road, SE16 3SA) with free tea in the cafe from 12:30-1:00pm. They are lead by artistic director Jade Shaw and core coach Jacob Peregrine-Wheller.
Parkour Dance Company would like to thank Kagyu Samye Dzong Centre without whose continuing support these sessions would not have been able to go forward. The centre whose focus is on well-being and world peace has offered both the beautiful yoga rooms and tibetan tea cafe as a space for connection and joy throughout the program.

This video and course was supported by United St Saviour’s Charity based in north Southwark.

Is there a simple secret to a happier, more fulfilling life?
Do people agree on any key factors that lead to a happier way of being?
Imagine if there was a place where you could ask these questions, and explore some possible answers.
The Museum of Happiness, because Happiness Matters.
A place where you could just enjoy discovering ideas, or participate in a free workshop if you'd like to.
A space where you don't just think about happiness - but perhaps feel a bit happier too.

Instead of redecorating his flat or learning a new language, he chose instead to post an advert on Gumtree. Concise and anonymous, it consisted of just a few lines, simply offering help to anyone who wanted it, in whatever way they needed.
