Exercise for Mental Muscle is a class of enjoyable, relaxing and simple movements that can stimulate whole-brain learning; allowing participants to access parts of the brain previously untapped, making learning easier and more fun, recollection quicker and more vivid.
Using physical exercises, gentle acupressure and massage, based on the principles of Tai Chi Chuan, Qi Gong, Reflexology and Traditional Oriental Medicine we can feed the brain, and stimulate it to learn and grow.
Scientific studies have shown that physical exercise can stimulate the growth of new brain cells and improve memory and the ability to learn.
Suitable for all ages and abilities, participants may choose to sit or stand as needed.
What students have said about our classes
"The ability to reverse this trend with physical exercise [Tai Chi] and increased mental activity implies that it may be possible to delay the onset of dementia in older persons through interventions that have many physical and mental health benefits."
