SParky Samba hitting headlines at home and abroad

A special Samba class for people living with Parkinson’s in Cardiff has hit the headlines at home and abroad after participants reported an improvement in their physical and mental health.

SParky Samba, started by Eirwen Malin, is proving so successful among its ever-growing attendees that researchers are now planning a study into its impact on Parkinson’s symptoms.

Parkinson's is the world’s fastest growing neurological condition and affects around 153,000 people in the UK. SParky Samba sessions offer gentle rhythmic exercise for the body, challenge the mind and enable people to socialise and make new friends.
