MOVEment with Mindset Massage

Dancercise lesson with Mindset-Massage

Seated Chair Exercise offers all the benefits of standing exercise, without the risk, and is ideal for those with limited mobility of all ages and abilities.

Whilst mobility issues bring with them many challenges, it’s possible to improve mobility by using seated chair exercises to work on strengthening different muscles groups, help keep the joints flexible, improve breathing and fitness levels – all of which help towards improving range of motion and mobility.

Age related muscle loss, weakened joints and poor balance are the most common risk factors for falls, which can lead to injuries such as hip fractures or shoulder injuries, resulting in people being more likely to end up in hospital or needing social care.

There is considerable evidence that regular physical activity can reverse age-related decline in physical and mental function and help to maintain mobility, balance and co-ordination, as well as improve muscle strength, all contributing to a more independent life style.

Information about Dancercise

All our classes are aimed to strengthen muscles and joints, which in turn improves balance, thus reduce these risks whilst helping the participants regain confidence, both physically, mentally and socially. In addition to offering the physical benefits, it has been proven through many studies that exercise can improve self-esteem, relieve stress and reduce depression. The regular social interaction with others, that our exercise classes provide, helps improve cognitive and mental wellbeing giving participants a sense of belonging and offsetting feelings of loneliness.

The Department of Health state older adults who take part in any amount of physical activity gain some health benefits including maintenance of good physical and cognitive function. They add that it is never too late to start, and benefit from, physical activity even for older adults who have previously been inactive.
