In our newsletters we have mentioned how Low Impact Functional Training or LIFT helps older people remain active and independent.
Using chair based and stability exercises we aim to strengthen muscles and help balance. We’re delighted say that the SHOUT LIFT are running twice a month and our participants are enjoying the activities and the social side of the sessions.
We’re very excited that we’ll be running eight Tai Chi sessions in January and February aimed at complete beginners. You’ll learn a set of simple Tai Chi moves and the group will build their confidence from week to week. These sessions will be very low impact but you will need to be able to stand for a period of time.
The LIFT sessions are carried out sitting down the whole time and may be a better option for some. If you’d like to put your name down on the waiting list for Tai Chi please get in touch.
Our next meeting is in the Evergreen Hall on Wednesday 19 October 2016, why not come along for tea and biscuits and listen to our interesting speaker. Helen Embling who facilitates the Hearing Impairment Group will give us an interesting insight into some of the issues of persons with impaired hearing. Future speakers will include the Health Board, Carers Wales and Bridgend CBC. Its all free so why not come along and give it a try.
Join us for a free cuppa and say hello.
