Seated exercise

Seated exercise classes

Performing seated exercises will help improve your mobility and prevent falls, and can even be done at home. If you’re not very active, you may want to get the all-clear from a GP before starting. All these classes are open to everyone so put on some loose, comfortable clothing and ensure you have some water and go and try out a class!
