Fun exercise for body and mind
Great Moves is a 10-week course of interactive classes which exercises the body and brain with a mixture of fun sequences. It has many benefits including reducing stress, improving balance and stability. Also includes time to chat and have a cuppa with new friends.
The Great Moves Project aims to provide access to exercise for those who, for reasons of poor health, low motivation or disability/mobility problems, do not usually regard exercise and movement as fun.
We work with participants, supporting and motivating them to retain and develop their interest in movement and exercise in an enjoyable way. Routine habits of movement, however limited, can enhance posture and breathing, core strength and stability, helping to retain balance and lessen the likelihood of falls and accidents due to poor mobility.
The sort of exercise involved in Great Moves has been found to be helpful for people in the early stages of dementia, Parkinson’s and other long-term conditions. It may also be beneficial for people who are isolated or feeling down and in maintaining good physical health in older men and women who may have compromised mobility.
