Today as part of our ‘Looking Forward’ parent and carer group here at Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM), we had the pleasure of welcoming a lovely woman called Nora Ma, founder of ‘Envolve Wellness’, to our centre and she have us a taster session in boxerciSEN. BoxerciSEN is a simple boxing class that works with both children and adults who have disabilities. 
 
Boxersice is a form of physical exercise which is based on a sequence of movements that are tailored to each person’s needs and range of movement and ability. Nora was fantastic in her teaching and her approach to the people here at CPM, she could adapt her techniques and style to each individual’s needs. 
 
Cerebral Palsy Midlands together with Sociability Care organised today's support group session for 'Looking Forward' to be focussed on self care. Reiki and relaxation specialist Sarah Louise Rowlands was bought in to talk to parents, carers, staff and clients about the importance of looking after ourselves. 
 
Today the new 'Looking Forward' support network group organised by Sociability Care and Cerebral Palsy Midlands met at the CPM centre in Harborne for an informal chat over tea and cake about how future meet ups and the group would be shaped moving forward. The group felt it was key to have a focus at the next meeting around self-care, health and well being for carers. We agreed that we need to be strong and health both physically and mentally to be caregivers and help others in our roles. The next meeting will take place on Thursday 9th February at 10.00am and we will look for someone to perhaps come in and show us a method we can use to look after ourselves, whether that is through meditation, breathing, tai-chi or exercise.
