If this isn't for you, there are lots of other option such as yoga, dancing and stretching.

The DMUactive free virtual offer will continue to provide online content that is open to all DMU staff and students. There are three strands to the offer, helping us to ensure that we provide something for everyone: the virtual timetable#KeepDMUactive and How to with DMUactive.
