Other Sports

From time to time BLAGSS provides sessions/short courses in various sports. In the past year Beach Volleyball, Beach Football, Cricket, Sailing and Swimming have been provided. The sessions have been provided on a 'come and try it' basis and have provided signposts to other sports clubs who play on a regular basis.

BLAGSS work regularly in partnership with other local LGBT sports clubs, where BLAGSS members are welcome.

Research was undertaken in November 2016 to try and set up a Yoga class for BLAGSS members. However, the range of replies received indicate that those interested already pursue their chosen activity at a variety of different venues and therefore there would be no advantage in trying to set up a separate BLAGSS session. Furthermore, there are many different disciplines which people follow and it would be very difficult to identify one that would appeal to all.

For those who may wish to pursue Yoga for themselves, BLAGSS responses suggest the following:
Dynamic Yoga
Brighton Natural Health Centre
Peer Action (for those with or affected by HIV)
Yoga Haven
Details of classes offered by the above organisations are available on their websites.
I hope that you find a class that suits you, there are many on offer.
