We beginning 24 June, why dancing is good for you and radio interview-options and recovery

I was chatting with one of my Zumba Gold classes last week about the many benefits of coming to Zumba regularly. I was saying how good it is for agility, balance and coordination and it helps reduce blood pressure, improves lung function, strengthens the heart and so on when one of my lovely class members said ‘But it just makes you feel good!‘ and of course it really does! What happens in our brains when we dance.

Last week was my 15th Zumba instructor anniversary known as a Zinversary (ZIN= Zumba instructor network) Zumba has seen me and some of you through the hardest of times and it is such a joy to keep dancing with you all!

Radio Interview
I had the pleasure of being interviewed by another Radio Leyland host Graham Lockwood who has recently started coming to Move It Mondays here we talk about exercise options and recovery. Listen from 26 minutes to hear the interview.

No classes on 4 July
Due to the general election, our venues are being used as polling stations so no classes that day at St Mary’s Community Centre and Prospect House.

Cancelling a class
This can be done on your Gymcatch booking system. When you cancel you will receive a class credit if you do it before the start of the class.
