Not just an exercise class - Medau is a method of movement training that helps with balance and co-ordination particularly important as you get older. Why not give it a try?
Medau combines work on cardiovascular fitness, strength and suppleness as well as rhythm and mood.
Medau classes are designed to have a very positive impact on each individual’s overall fitness and mood. Small apparatus like balls or hoops are used in activities to improve balance and coordination, reaction times, stamina and energy levels.
Skills you develop in class will also help you in every day life. Faster reaction times, stamina to run for that bus, more energy for that longer walk and poise to 'strut your stuff' on the dance floor!
The Medau Society is part of the Exercise, Movement and Dance Partnership (EMDP) - see http://www.medau.org.uk/ or click on the link
The Sport and Recreation Alliance have issued the following 'Top 10 physical activities for people who don't like sport':
There is growing concern about the inactivity epidemic in the UK and all the facts and figures show that regularly taking part in sport can have an enormously positive impact on a person’s health and happiness.
But what about those for whom the idea of competitive or traditional sport is nothing but a bit of a turn off?
Physical activity can dramatically improve quality of life – but it has to be something that will make you feel good and isn’t going to become just one more thing to tick off a long list of chores.
If you enjoy something then it’s much easier to make a habit of it. So if people are to make a long-term habit of physical activity then it is important that they find something that suits them and that they can enjoy making part of their routine.
So we’ve put together our top ten physical activities for people who don’t like traditional sport and are now itching to try some of them ourselves.
Our Top 10:
2. Nordic walking
3. Bagot Stack
4. Roller derby
5. Just Jhoom
7. Medau movement
8. Ice skating
10. Artistic roller skating
