Drums Alive program combines fitness and fun

Watch the video above to learn how the Drums Alive program is helping people get more out of life.

Good Samaritan Society – Mountain Home is pleased to offer Drums Alive, a unique fitness experience that joins dynamic, full-body movements with the pulsating rhythms of the drum.

Drumming has been found to improve and increase the neurological connection between the two brain hemispheres, stimulating alpha brain wave activity that can lead to higher levels of concentration, sensory/motor improvement and an overall sense of well-being.

When I drum and dance, I'm having so much fun that I don't even realize that I'm working out!" – Drums Alive participant

Drums Alive — Golden Beats is specially designed for older adults. This unique drum and dance celebration will leave you feeling energized, yet centered and relaxed. When we drum and dance, we are having fun, which releases endorphins and decreases negative feelings.
