Back to Activities

The Active Lifestyles Team at Cambridge City Council provide and support a wide range of accessible and low-cost physical activity sessions for people of all ages living in Cambridge.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • Physical activity releases endorphins which can make you feel good;
  • Regular exercise can help to reduce stress, anxiety and depression;
  • The activity sessions are social, meaning that you have the opportunity to meet others.

“Thank you very much for offering this opportunity to practice yoga for such a friendly price… Already from just doing few sessions, I feel so good and feel encouraged to exercise more. I feel much better in my body and my back pain is noticeably reduced. I look forward to every lesson… It has definitely improved my physical and mental state of health.”

The Active Lifestyles Team run a huge variety of sport, fitness and wellbeing activities. Some are open to all adults, others are aimed at particular age groups such as over 50s or children, young people and families.
