The movement and exercise session of our EyeCan! self management programme is delivered in partnership with New Rhythms for Glasgow.
New Rhythms for Glasgow use music, art and dance to support, energise and empower vulnerable communities.
Kirsteen from New Rhythms for Glasgow explains the support available to EyeCan! participants:
‘Within EyeCan! we deliver a ‘Recovery Rhythms’ taster, tailored to meet the needs of people living with visual impairments. Staff will support you with any balance or physical impairments you may have to ensure you remain safe whilst participating in the session.
‘Recovery Rhythms’ is a dance-based programme focusing on mental health and well-being. It involves music, dance and some mindfulness meditation. Neuroscience research supports the positive effects of dance and movement on brain development and health. In addition, dance and movement have been proven to enhance physical health, emotional well-being and social engagement.
We believe that dance and movement are inclusive activities. Our goal is to encourage people living with sight loss to engage in a positive activity which will leave them feeling on top of the world!’
