African drumming circle at Aveo Bentleigh
Last Friday Aveo Bentleigh residents experienced something a little different, they all participated in an African Drumming. For centuries drums have been known for their powerful, magical qualities. Traditional healers from many different cultures around the world have used their intangible qualities for music therapies throughout the ages. Playing percussion can open your emotions and nourish them, enliven a low mood, help your mental clarity and even lend energy to your physical being. The development of Drumming Circles for the elderly is a new phenomenon that is rapidly spreading worldwide in forward thinking organizations. The sessions provide some major health benefits as well as providing an opportunity for fun, social interaction, improving the lives of all who participate. Our residents and staff had a wonderful time playing the drums and percussion instruments. A big thank you to Igor the drumming instructor.
