Balance and exercise classes for the over 60s

Exercise class

One significant problem of old age is loss of independence. Reducing the risk of falls, exercising regularly and attaining a reasonable degree of physical fitness would help an older person meet the demands of their daily routine.

Age UK Waltham Forest, in partnership with Waltham Forest Council has funded a number of weekday classes throughout the Borough.

The classes, which include Tai Chi and gentle exercise to music, are aimed at all older adults, including those with limited mobility. They can be carried out either standing or seated. We aim to make the classes informal and enjoyable.
