ParkLives Southampton

Coca Cola are sponsoring free activity sessions in parks across the nation through an initiative called ParkLives.

Sign up and find your local sessions by using the free sports activities finder to take part in sports like football, running and zumba.

Just scroll through the sessions and click on the ones you want to sign up to.

Recently I tried one of the yoga in the park sessions. Thankfully the weather held out and it was a lovely hour in the sun stretching my limbs.

Our wonderful instructor Jeneen really knew her stuff and took us through some relaxation and stretching routines during the class.

Yoga is great for calming down, focusing and for feeling more limber. I always come away from a session much more relaxed and with a clear head.

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of walking and was feeling really tight where I hadn’t had much time to stretch. This class was perfect for easing tight legs and getting back into yoga. It had been a while since my last practice and this was a brilliant way to get back into it.

This was my view from the yoga mat…

…and this was the view of the sunset over the water to our right…

…it was a fabulous way to spend an evening. I came away from the session feeling reinvigorated and ready for the rest of the week.

Head over to to find a sport or activity you’re interested in taking part in. The best part is that it’s free and promoting the use of our parks.
