Movement plays an integral part in all of our lives and we recognise the value of this for a healthy and happy life - from making a cup of tea, playing with the kids, or going for a run, we are always moving.
Our work focuses on enhancing this integral part of our lives, exploring movement in a wide variety of ways to help people live well for longer. From classes involving stretching, core strengthening and breathing techniques, to our unique 'Team Well' workplace programme, we provide inclusive and accessible movement based activities that focus on the whole person and work to enhance overall quality of life. We are a Community Interest Company, working on a not-for-profit basis with the people we work with at the heart of what we do.
We were founded by Alice Grayson and Sam McCormick in 2017, who are highly experienced in movement and wellbeing - they have worked as movement practitioners, facilitators and dancers with a variety of settings, including schools, community groups, charities, universities and with individuals. Alice now leads the company and we also welcomed on board Hilary Hopwood. Hilary has a wealth of experience in teaching and health and social care and also runs East Meets West, a charity based in Lancaster that brings together women from different cultural backgrounds to celebrate friendship. Hilary offers a unique perspective to Curel, enabling us to broaden our work and ensure we are providing the highest quality service.
