Join a seated aerobics class specifically designed for the over 50s by instructor, Sharon Kelly for those who want to keep active, but cannot join in with activities such as walking, cycling, pilates or aerobics classes.
The gentle sitting exercises taught by Sharon can also be done at home and are designed to help improve mobility and prevent falls.
Wear comfortable clothing and bring your own water bottle.
You are advised to check with your doctor first before starting any exercise program and if you have any concerns regarding your fitness level, ability or skill or undertake this activity, you should seek the appropriate independent advice. Please note, neither the instructor or COTA staff are authorised to give any advice in this regard. You must register your attendance on arrival (which includes agreement to a voluntary assumption of risk: that you undertake the class at your own risk and acknowledge and voluntarily accept the level of risk consequent with that activity).
Free for class in first week of August, $5 for COTA NT members and $7 for non-members thereafter
This program is funded by a Living Longer Living Stronger grant.
The program is hosted by Greenfields Living at their retirement living community, Durack Gardens.
(Seated aerobics is held in the Community Centre and is open to ALL seniors – see more information at, https://www.durackgardensnt.com.au/)
