Vim and Vigour

What is it?

Join our Vim & Vigour programme and start to enjoy the freedom of movement again.

We take everyday tasks such as climbing the stairs, bending to tie shoelaces, getting out to the shops etc. for granted until, for whatever reason, they become a challenge. Courtyard has developed Vim & Vigour, a 6-week programme specifically designed to tackle such difficulties via group based exercises and advice sessions with our specialist Physiotherapist.

Vim & Vigour aims to help you re-gain strength, energy and enthusiasm, overcoming physical issues so that you can  enjoy the freedom of movement again and maintain your independence.

The new programme will start in the Autumn and will be run by Vicky Baker, one of our Physiotherapists. Vicky has many years’ experience helping patients to overcome physical issues and increase their mobility to re-gain independence and life fulfilment.

To ensure you get the most out of the sessions, Vicky will spend time getting to know you, to understand what you may need to move forward. At the end of the 6-week course you might decide to continue with Vim & Vigour and carry on enjoying the benefits we hope you will be experiencing.

If you, or someone you know, would benefit from Vim & Vigour please call us on 01453 548 119or email to reserve your place.  If you have any further queries, please call on the above number and the team at Courtyard will be happy to help.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Vicky Baker

Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor

Since joining the Courtyard Clinic I have realised that although it is important to specialise it is also important to be able to transfer your skills and therefore my aim for my future progression in physiotherapy is to be able to incorporate more musculoskeletal techniques.

Here’s What Our Clients Think of Us

For Karla (Hypnotherapist)

“I was here on 3-day work experience. The first day I was nervous but there was a ‘family atmosphere’ where everyone was really welcoming and made me feel comfortable. I enjoyed every minute and would love to come again.” Charlie Edwards

For Vicky (Vim and Vigour)

“I am now nearing the end of my second course of Vim and Vigour sessions. I must say, along with thoroughly enjoying myself I have noticed an improvement in my balance, core strength and flexibility over this period. My thanks go to Vicky who has focused the activities towards my particular needs and has also raised my awareness of how to combat the ageing issues my body is facing. Thank you.” Karen McDonald

For Jo (Physiotherapy)

“I have to say that in all my years, working and coaching, and being treated myself, that was one of the finest pieces of work I’ve ever witnessed. My daughter is a very complex, head strong young lady. I am truly in awe of the way Jo took on the mental and physical challenges in a way she could accept. Very grateful for all you’ve done”         

 For Jo Roberts (Equipment Based Pilates)

“Over the last 2 years of rehab, I’ve done lots of different exercises, some extreme that have worked me hard. This is the only one that I’ve had to ask to stop mid-session to get a drink of water, that’s how hard it pushes you, do not underestimate this fantastic form of exercise.” Jerry Fowler
