Hi, I'm Aya

I'm organizing a jogging club every Monday morning. ...
Jyoge (Columbia), Yuji(Korea), Laula(China), Raphael(Swissland) and Emi(Japan) join me there. Usually I teach and lead them, because actually I'm a certified jogging instructor in Japan.

We had so much fun last term and still have a fun even though we are now outside term, so if I can, I would like to share the fun with more NVS members.

Cost: free of charge

Day & Time: Every Monday 10:00-11:30

*If the weather is uncertain, you will be contacted by 9am on the day

Venue: 1 Walnut Tree Ave at 10:00

Please be aware that there are no lockers so you will need to take all your stuff with you. Because it is free, we are not responsible for accidents and injuries during jogging.

If you would like to join me please email me at the address below:
