Our three Movement for the Mind groups meet fortnightly for gentle exercise to music in a supportive and friendly group setting. 

The groups were started in response to research showing the benefits of physical activity to people with memory and cognitive problems. Our facilitators include dance therapists, fitness coaches and physiotherapists who are specialists in their field and trained in dementia awareness. 

Sessions start with a gentle warm-up before moving on to the main activity. Everyone is encouraged to do as much or little as they feel able to and you do not have to be 'super-fit' to take part. People with restricted mobility and wheelchair users are welcome. The exercise lasts for about an hour and at the end of the session refreshments are served during a social half hour before the group closes.
