MS-UK welcome Bridget Poulter who is a ‘Love to Move’ dance instructor and will be providing the opportunity to understand the benefits of movement through dance in this introduction session online.
Date: Wednesday 14 December
Time: 2pm to 3pm
The British Gymnastic Foundation (BGF) devised Love to Move based on Japanese research on the benefits of 'bi-lateral asymmetric' exercises with dementia. After this initial work the programme has been expanded to develop classes specifically for people with MS. Love to Move combines a unique mix of physical and mental exercises stimulating memory, imagination, and parts of the brain other activities may not reach.
Love to Move is suitable for those to take part in standing and seated positions. The class will be mostly seated with options to move lower limbs, improve hand coordination, and strengthen the all-important core muscles. Bridget will use a mix of directive exercises that challenge not only the body, but the brain with memory games as well as more improvised movement and rhythmic explorations. The best thing is to come and try it yourself!
