Becoming more active can be a positive change to make to your life. Evidence shows that physical activity can benefit people in several different ways. It can impact your health by reducing tiredness, anxiety and depression, improving quality of life, helping look after your heart and maintaining a healthy weight, strengthening bones, muscles and joints and improving flexibility.

Join Hannah, our physiotherapist, for these fun and active classes that can be carried out from your chair with the option of progressing to standing exercises. Each session will include exercises that focus on a combination of balance, flexibility and strength while also having fun. 

As a taster, why not join Hannah on this 11-minute video of gentle seated exercise.

When does the online exercise group meet? 

Every other Wednesday, 11-11.45am. Please see the Living Well Groups calendar for specific dates.

These sessions will be open to people after screening/assessment by our physiotherapist. Attendees will also need to be registered with a GP in our catchment area.
