Hello, my name is Lucy. I love cooking, dark chocolate, being creative….and sometimes I get a bit anxious!
Spending time outdoors in nature and doing regular exercise keeps me sane but last year in lockdown I couldn’t get enough of either.
It hit me how important spending time in nature is, but how many reasons we have in our lives for not being able to get outside, long working hours, urban living, illness, agoraphobia, the list goes on…
I want to bring the beauty and calming quality of nature to people, at home, with exercises for your mind and body.
THE SCIENCE BIT…
So, I knew that looking at images of nature made me feel good, but I did some research and found that I wasn’t alone. It is a ‘thing’, you can read more about it here. But basically, looking at nature images can have a really positive impact on your mental health.
SHINE STRONG REVOLUTION WAS BORN… SO WHAT IS IT?
Take a beautiful video montage of forests, islands, fields, and mountains, add a meditation to release all your stress, then do a workout, suited to your ability, while saying positive affirmations to train your mind with your body, then finish with another short meditation… - A mind and body fitness class empowering you to be HAPPY – HEALTHY – RESILIENT.
I want my classes to help people invest in their mental and physical health at the same time. Life is so busy that its often hard to look after both but with our classes you won’t need to choose.
I’m really passionate about making the classes accessible for everyone, so we have created exercise levels for everyone, from your kids to your grandma. Our gentle classes are also suitable for people who are recovering from illness, a time when it can be really hard to get out into nature.
WHAT HAVE WE DONE?
We need to develop two apps so we can launch the business. This will cost £10,000. We have self-funded so far but to get the classes to the people we need your help. The money will pay for a mobile app and a TV app so the classes can be done anywhere anytime. It will also pay to upgrade our website to integrate the apps.
No level of donation is ever too small, everything will help make a difference.
HOW ELSE CAN YOU HELP?
Sharing our campaign with your friends and family is also extremely valuable for us!
If you have any questions, I would love to hear from you!

Thank you so much for your time and please help in any way you can.
