Tamworth Love to Move - chair based exercise - Home Instead Senior Care

Starting Monday 20th January 2020 1.30pm-3.00pm

Home Instead Senior Care, in partnership with the British Gymnastics Foundation and Coton Green Centre are launching a chair based gymnastic  programme specially designed to get older people moving and functioning better.

The science bit...........

Almost every part of this chair-based exercise programme works on bi-lateral asymmetric movement patterns. This benefits all older people by enabling the left side and right side of the brain to process information independently, thus improving cognitive function, co-ordination, core strength and the ability to carry out activities of daily living more independently ... So basically its great for all!

Our programme is at Coton Green Centre Comberford Rd, Tamworth  B79 9AA

It will take place at 1.30pm - 3.00pm every
Monday.

We will be serving tea, coffee and biscuits in what will be a friendly and encouraging environment. We ask for a donation of £2.50 to attend.

For more information please contact Karen on 01827 431002

Notes

The Love to Move programme, founded in Japan and has been developed by the British Gymnastics Association who spent 3 years researching, out in Japan.  Its specially designed to get older people functioning better, as well as this, there are other benefits that can help to improve the lives of people living with the effects of mobility problems and memory loss.  The science behind the programme, is bilateral asymmetrical movement patterns, which is where the left side of the body’s movements do not mirror the right side of the body’s movements. 

Research from Japan concluded that improvements due to the bilateral asymmetrical movement patterns, not only helped with their physicality but also helped with their mental wellbeing.  Older people attending such classes reported a reduced risk of social isolation, an improvement to balance and postural stability, which reduces the risk, falls.

The exercises can result in an increased number of connections between neurons; helping to keep the brain functioning better which is beneficial for everyone.
