Fair Park Senior Center partners with Cumberland County UT Extension to offer new and exciting programs throughout each year. Our newest class is “Drums Alive” instructed by Crystal Blakenship with UT Extension.
What is Drums Alive you ask? According to Drums-Alive.com it is a unique sensory/motor program that is designed to give the mind and body instant feedback through continuous movement and rhythmical flow. It is a program that utilizes “whole brain – whole body” thinking by developing sensory motor reflexes and kinesthetic awareness.
The physiological and psychological benefits are numerous, including those found in traditional forms of aerobic fitness. Drumming has also been found to improve and increase the neurological connection between the two brain hemispheres, stimulating Alpha brain wave activity which can lead to higher levels of concentration, sensory/motor improvement, and an overall sense of well-being.
This program is a 4-week class that is held twice a week. Crystal and her team do an amazing job with this class. Not only is this a great work out, but the music is great, and the atmosphere is friendly. To sign up for our March course please contact Fair Park Senior Center at 931-484-7416.
