AN INVITATION TO MEMBERS FOR A POSSIBLE NEW GROUP

A few years ago, whilst working in care, I started a local chair based exercise group which went by the name of ‘SEATED SPRINGERS’. It is based on increasing fitness levels for older adults. The goals are to improve and maintain individual physical mobility by a range of movements whilst remaining seated. Some standing positions may be possible for some participants. It is set to music chosen by myself, and is about 15 minutes in length, or longer depending on individual ability, energy or somebody recovering from an illness. I have a level 2 certificate in Chair based Exercises from Age Concern and I would be happy to run a group by Zoom or other means if there are any participants out there during this extended lockdown when going out isn’t always an enticing option in winter conditions. If you are interested, contact Liz Hill, our groups organiser.
With Regards, Mave Robins
