This class is designed to meet the special needs of the older adult to enhance activities of daily living. It is chair-based, but includes some standing exercises.
The class begins with a gentle warm-up of range of motion, stretching, posture
and breathing exercises. Various exercises using resistance bands, handheld weights, and your own bodyweight are used to build muscular strength and endurance and improve balance. The class concludes with a cool-down for flexibility and relaxation exercises.
Level of difficulty: Easy.
