Members of the Havering Stroke Association were put through their paces on Wednesday as they participated in a fitness session which blends dance with martial arts.
The Nia movement fitness session was led by Michele Kaye, 59, who has been teaching the Nia technique for 10 years and delivered a specially adapted session for the group at Trinity Methodist Church, in Angel Way, Romford.
“It was great and well received,” said Michele. “We did some tae kwon do and the men particularly enjoyed that.”
One of the group’s members, 63-year-old Stewart St Clair Pearce, is already looking forward to welcoming Michele back again.
“They were (the members) singing their hearts out at the end,” he said. “Even the those in the wheelchairs said they really enjoyed it and it was brilliant. I’m sure she’s coming back.”
