Following on from Leitrim Co Council's successful Smoke Alarm Scheme last year, Free smoke alarms are again being offered to vulnerable households in 2018. Under the community smoke alarm scheme, two 10 year battery operated smoke alarms (one Optical and one Ionisation) are provided to vulnerable homes in Leitrim who do not currently have them.

Applications are invited from individual households (for example older people, people with disabilities, lone parents and unemployed persons) who currently have no smoke alarms and are in a position to install the alarms themselves. Voluntary groups/volunteers and others who visit people in vulnerable households, are asked to identify and assist people in applying for and installing the alarms.

For more details on how to apply, and for a link to the application form go to the Leitrim County Council web site:  CLICK HERE

 Benefits of yoga include:

  • Increased flexibility.
  • Increased muscle strength and tone.
  • Improved respiration, energy and vitality.
  • Maintaining a balanced metabolism.
  • Weight reduction.
  • Cardio and circulatory health.
  • Improved athletic performance.
  • Protection from injury.

What yoga can do for your body:

The researchers found that yoga outperformed aerobic exercise at improving balance, flexibility, strength, pain levels among seniors, menopausal symptoms, daily energy level, and social and occupation functioning, among other health parameters. Yoga does more than calm you down and make you flexible

Why Yoga is good for your health:

Workout fads come and go, but virtually no other exercise program is as enduring as yoga. It's been around for more than 5,000 years. Yoga does more than burn calories and tone muscles. It's a total mind-body workout that combines strengthening and stretching poses with deep breathing and meditation or relaxation.

How Yoga is beneficial for weight loss:

Yoga Only Burns 3-6 Calories Per Minute. In order to lose body fat, you have to create a deficit of calories. If you burn more calories than you consume, you will lose weight, and one pound of fat is equivalent to about 3500 calories. Yoga classes often endure for about 60-90 minutes.
