We can support you in maintaining health, mobility and independence. We have a variety of group exercise classes, both in-person and online, along with options to support you to be active at home.

Mind and Body (a blend of Tai Chi and yoga poses, with Pilates breathing)

Mind and Body classes blend Tai Chi and yoga poses with Pilates breathing to create a sense of well-being and peace whilst exercising.

The exercises focus on gentle, flowing rhythmic movements, which are done seated whilst introducing slow, deep breathing techniques to help focus and concentration.

They are a great way to improve balance, flexibility and general mobility, as well as reducing stress levels. The focus on breathing can boost both physical and mental wellbeing.

Our Mind and Body classes are available online via Zoom on Tuesdays 11:30am-12:30pm.

Classes are £4 per session.

Chair Based Exercise (for those who are more comfortable seated)

Chair based exercise can improve strength, flexibility, mobility, and coordination, for those who are more comfortable seated.

Our classes are a great way to have fun and meet like-minded people, whilst building up strength and stamina to make every day tasks easier.

Our amazing tutors incorporate a variety of music to boost motivation and energy, for a real feel-good class.
