Seated Gentle Exercise

What does it do?

Our seated exercise classes are designed to improve confidence, increase stability, improve mobility and balance, strengthen muscles, improve posture, most importantly help prevent falls and lessen the impact a fall can have on the body.

Staff are trained in facilitating older persons exercise sessions using an holistic approach. The class is kept to a maximum of 14 attendees and each client has an assessment of capability when they join. The class tutor guides each client through the session using a person-centred approach. The tutor will also identify any other services within Age UK North, South & West Dorset that may benefit the client.
