Frequently Asked Questions about Recovery in Motion
Do you need to have any experience to take part?
The quick answer is “no!”, this activity is all about introducing the concept of getting out of your mind and into your body.
We start with breath work and explore different “recovery related” ideas and concepts through movement to improve wellbeing.
It’s simple, everyday movement, which helps to calm busy minds.
What do I need to wear?
Loose, comfortable clothing that you can move in.
Who can participate?
Any one in recovery from addiction or affected by addiction ie. family or carers.
Do you need to live in Salford or Bolton to take part?
Is it fun?
Yes! We have lots of fun at Fallen Angels, we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
Who is leading the workshops?
We have a person-centred approach to workshops, our leaders are experienced in creating a “safe space” for everyone to feel valued and at ease and welcome. We work as a whole and in small groups so you can get to know other people and create a sense of unity as a group.
Do I need to be confident to take part?
Most people who join Fallen Angels projects are unsure and can feel worried. Recovery is all about “feeling the fear and doing it anyway”. This is a new project, so it’ll be everyone’s first time, if you commit to the project then it will really help to build recovery capital, self esteem and confidence.
