We started the first class of our Mermaid excercise course on Monday night at Bramley Baths, We had a lovely and very enthusiastic group of ladies attend, some new and some who had been to our taster classes last summer. We started off with a bit of ‘Bunny Breaststroke’ to the sounds of the Andrews Sisters to warm up then went on to learning skulling and the dreaded ‘Egg beater’! (a treading water technique used by Synchronised Swimmers). Everyone picked up the moves at such a fast pace that by the end of the session we had put together a routine involving Flamingos and Swans (our own interpretations of course 🙂
It was a really great session and we were so impressed with the groups skills we will have to get some harder moves together for next week to keep them on (or off) their toes! It was also nice to have a chill and a chat in the Steam Room at the Baths after! Well we did deserve it!! Looking forward to next week!!
