Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all of our group activity classes for seniors are currently suspended. We will resume activities as soon as it is safe to do so, but obviously, the health of our patrons, staff and instructors are the important factors to consider.
We are putting together ideas on how to stay active whilst you are based at home including some online classes. COTA NT is very thankful to Sharon Kelly, our wonderful fitness and health coach who is working to create more online classes that you can watch via her YouTube channel. We hope you enjoy these classes in the meantime, stay active and stay well.
You can view COTA NT online Fit for Life classes here.
Please note advice from Sharon on how to use the classes before you begin. Do send us your feedback about the classes, as we can’t ask you in person.
COTA NT offers participation in health, well being and fitness sessions at the lowest cost possible to participants (in line with WHO age-friendly guidelines) and to encourage as much participation as possible. Participants are encouraged to socialise before and after each class. Classes start from 9.30am to suit most seniors’ preferred times.
The instructors for health and fitness-based programs hosted by COTA NT are appropriately qualified and have a duty of care towards patrons. However, before your first session, you must follow the ‘Before you attend’ guidelines below.
*COTA NT membership card must be shown before each session to qualify for the discount (view more information about COTA NT membership)
For more information, please visit the COTA NT activities calendar.
There are many programs offered by other organisations, service providers and businesses. If you can’t find an activity hosted by COTA NT, please view those listed on the Territory Seniors Calendar.
Typically during Seniors Month, additional funding from the Northern Territory government enables us to trial new classes. In the past these have included: Laughter Yoga, Yoga, Meditation, Chair-Seated Exercise Aerobics, Spilates (a unique blend of Pilates and strength training), Cardio Fun, Bootcamp and Boxercise.
