John Lewis and Waitrose launch free virtual health workshops for members

John Lewis is launching new free virtual health workshops for its members aiming to tackle a lockdown related issues like poor posture and disturbed sleep.

MyJohnLewis and MyWaitrose members will be able to access the workshops for free every Wednesday throughout June.

The sessions have been developed in partnership with life insurer Vitality, and will include family fitness classes conducted by Olympic athletes and sporting experts Lizzie Simmonds and Samantha Murray.

Experts from John Lewis bedding department will also host workshops on the importance of sleep and how to create a better sleeping environment, while Waitrose nutritionists will offer advice on how to eat more healthily while in lockdown.

“Lockdown will have taken its toll on us all in different ways, whether it’s long hours working on an unsuitable chair in our bedrooms, unhealthy snacking, disturbed sleep or lack of proper exercise, as well as the impact on our mental health,” John Lewis and Waitrose director of customer experience Peter Cross said.

“We’re really excited to be doing our bit to help and have created a broad range of content with some of the nation’s superstars as well as our own in house experts to look at wellbeing from a variety of angles – we hope that there’s something here for everyone however small.”

Last month the department store reintroduced a number of consultation services virtually for its online customers after closing its entire store estate on March 23.

Customers can now book a one-to-one virtual appointment with a John Lewis’ fashion stylist for free via Instagram video calls.

Alongside its fashion consultation service, John Lewis is also introducing free virtual nursery decoration and home design appointments through its website.
