Fitness at the Town Hall
Keep Fit Ode
"OH" how we love our keep fit class
We wriggle our hips and shake our ass
Elaine our teacher she knows what's what
she works us all till we're pleasantly hot
We point our toes and bend our knees
Hoping all our aches it will ease
All the ladies here are great
You could say we are all good mates
But we have to be serious while tai chi is being done
The benefit we get from this routine
Keeps your body and mind alert and keen
We all love the music of that I'm sure
Be it slow or fast you just want more
So praise to Elaine who gives us the best
She shows us the way and we do the rest
So I hope our class goes on and on
So keep dancing everyone and bring it on.
Elaine Ball is a registered exercise professional, a tai chi instructor, dance professional and Extend teacher working in the Wyre Forest district. Her classes are very popular and designed to meet the needs of the over 50's with a wide range of music to set the feet tapping and the soul soaring! Seated exercise is incorporated in class followed by gentle but stimulating aerobic exercises that are dance based.
A much appreciated part of the class is the gentle Qigong tai chi session to help relax the bodyand mind. Class members have been applying what they have been taught and have achieved a new understanding of relaxation and have applied the techniques learnt when in stressful situations.
As evidence now suggests, those who exercise in their later years are better for it in mind, body and spirit. There is a strong social side to the class with friendships forged and troubles shared. Outings are arranged and there is also a not for profit film club when there is a raffle to raise funds for charity. Elaine organizes trips to the theatre and is currently hoping to develop a drama group and possibly a choir. There is no membership fee and classes are £3.00 each session.
