Seated Dance and Yoga Exercise
Yoga and Dance based Exercises for the elderly or people with limited mobility
Exercise offers benefits to everyone including the elderly or people with limited mobility. Improving self-esteem, relieving stress, and reducing depression are scientifically proven benefits of exercise. Although mobility issues bring with them many challenges, it’s possible to overcome those limitations by using seated chair exercises that work different muscle groups in the body.
We have adapted almost all our workouts, Yoga, Bhangra, Bolly, Combat, Resistance Bands etc so that they can be done seated.
It is even more important to keep mobile as well as develop strength if you have mobility problems. In fact, the more you keep the blood flowing and muscles active in the parts which are still active the better your overall health will be.
As we move into our golden years it is ever more important to maintain an active lifestyle. Exercise will improve your immune system and digestive functioning, improve blood pressure and bone density, and lower the risk of Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, obesity, heart disease and osteoporosis.
And of course you will feel the key benefits of improving mobility, flexibility, and balance with each class. However the benefits are not just physical. Exercising regularly also helps you to feel calm, relaxed and improving sleep.
We also use the chair as a prop to support you with standing postures to improve your balance, strength and flexibility. Seated exercises will help improve the physical and mental wellbeing of the frail and less mobile.
Join our live-streamed Seated Dance and Yoga Exercise classes and start feeling the benefits immediately.
