If you are feeling confident, try some chair

exercise at home!

e

Don’t worry if you have not done much for a while,

these seated exercises are gentle and easy to

follow. If you are not very active, you may want to

get the all-clear from a GP before starting.

e

For these chair-based exercises, choose a chair

that is stable, solid and without wheels.

e

You should be able to sit with your feet flat on

the floor and knees bent at right angles.

Avoid chairs with arms, as this will restrict your

movement.

e

Wear loose, comfortable clothing and keep

some water handy.

e

Build up slowly and aim to gradually increase the

repetitions of each exercise over time.

e

Try to do these exercises at least twice a week

and combine them with the other routines in

this series to help improve strength, balance and

co-ordination.

“I enjoy the class. I love the music

and moving rhythmically to it.

It benefits my general wellbeing

and mobility.”

“I love it, it’s excellent. It helps me

with my balance, my arm and

especially my mobility. Excellent

instructor.”

“ I enjoy and look forward to the class.

I participate because it makes me

feel better, helps my joints and I

enjoy the company. I feel the benefit

in how I feel in myself and

my general mobility.”

“I really do thoroughly enjoy it, helps

my movement and balance.”
