Diverse program on offer at COTA NT
5 Feb 2019
There is a lot to love about what’s going on at COTA NT this February with a diverse and interesting program accessible to all seniors in the local community.
If you, a family member or someone you care for wants to start the year with light exercise program – perhaps for the first time – in a comfortable, indoor, welcoming and familiar environment, then one of the classes or activities we host may appeal. Classes are designed for seniors by qualified instructors or health and wellness professionals and all aim to improve physical confidence, balance, mobility and flexibility. Participants are encouraged to socialise before and after classes, and questions about any issues (e.g. about Seniors Card, NT Concession and Seniors Recognition Scheme, aged care packages and more), can be raised with COTA NT staff or volunteers, typically available on the day.
Before you attend classes, we ask you check with your doctor first or seek appropriate independent advice. You will be asked to fill in a Pre-Exercise Screening form and raise health concerns with the instructor, register your attendance (which includes agreement to a voluntary assumption of risk) and bring comfortable clothes and shoes, drink bottle and towel.
In February, at Spillett House COTA is hosting Pilates on Mondays 9.30am, and Seated Aerobics on Wednesdays 9.30am, a one-off Zumba Gold on Friday 8 Feb at 9.30am, ($5 members, $7 non-members); a musical group for beginner and experienced musicians on Tuesdays at 10am ($2); plus a Centrelink information session about Understanding the Age Pension (qualifications, claiming pension, income and assets, work bonus, concessions, rights etc,) on Thursday 28th (free, 10am start).
We also have movie passes to giveaway to CineBuzz for Seniors Morning Tea Screenings courtesy of Event Cinemas and a free four-week Ten Pin bowling program coming up on Thursday mornings in March (details on our Facebook page).
