"Many people in the class are elderly and have physical limitations. They are not pressed to do more than they are comfortable with and it is all very friendly."
Our Chair-Based Exercise classes aim to improve flexibility and fitness for people who prefer to remain seated, either on a chair or in a wheelchair. The classes are gentle and are particularly suitable for people who are less able. They offer the opportunity to exercise to music and to improve your limb mobility, muscle strength, co-ordination, balance and range of movement. The classes are set to lively music and use simple equipment such as balls, bands and hoops.
The class starts with a gentle warm up, followed by exercises that work all parts of the body in turn, and you will be encouraged to work at your own pace and rest if you need to. Even your hands and feet will get a work out!
At the end of the class you will cool down and then we hope that you will stay for a cup of coffee or tea and a chat.
