|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until February 2, 2021


We are very pleased to announce that SpinPoi is up and running. Weekly sessions occur every Tuesday from 2-3pm in the Age Concern Hall, 62 Oxford Street, Richmond.

SpinPoi has been scientifically proven to improve older people’s grip strength, balance and ability to sustain attention, as well as being great fun! Dr Kate Riegle van West, who did her PhD in the health benefits of SpinPoi on older adults, came to Nelson last year to do training sessions on how to teach SpinPoi, and our very own Funding & Communications Officer Miriam Clark is going to be leading these classes. Dr van West’s research at Auckland University showed how the exercise could help with maintaining balance and strength, which are very good predictors of overall health.

If you would like to come along, or know someone who might, please spread the word! There is no need to register – just turn up. If you would like more information, please phone Miriam on 5447624 ext 6.
