mildmay gentle exercise 1

mildmay gentle exercise 3

This week we popped in to Mildmay Park sheltered accomodation to get stretching, singing and dancing. With our tutor Cathrine (who teaches regularly over at Drovers Centre) the group were soon singing along to classic songs and waving their colourful ribbons with joy.

With a mixture of some simple stretches and movements we enjoyed a gentle but definite workout, before hitting the dancefloor and throwing some shapes!

Thanks to Marian, Activities Officer from Mildmay Park, and to our tutor Cathrine for her time and energy. It was a lovely afternoon.
