Sharpen your mind

The group offers a number of activities on the Sunshine Coast including Brainasize, mah-jong, cards, belly dancing, tai chi, art and craft groups, moving to music, gentle exercise, ukulele, computer tutorials as well as small bus excursions.

One of Sunshine 60’s most popular activities is an exercise program called Brainasize. Developed by Kerrie Marshall, it’s good for mind and body as well as being fun and relaxing.

It involves light physical exercise and combines hand-eye co-ordination, balance, motivation, memory games, clapping, stamping, tapping out patterns, juggling, sequence passing, new challenges and functionality.

“I really enjoy the camaraderie, fun and laughter with each class,” says participant Sue Goodman.

“Kerrie is terrific at explaining the benefits of each movement and challenges us with new moves. The brain exercises are definitely working.”

Brainasize classes are twice monthly, on the second and fourth Friday of the month, at Kawana Family Meeting Place, 60 Woodlands Blvd Meridan Plains, 11am-noon and Kawana Family Centre, 50 Iluka Ave, Buddina, 2pm - 3pm. Cost is $6.
