PROGRAMMES FACILITATED BY OTHERS:
Chair Yoga is a low impact exercise that benefits those who are recovering from an illness or an accident. Also for anyone who struggles with mobility including those in the older age group. Not only does it contribute to keeping and building muscle, but also helps with breathing. It does not require you to get onto or off the ground!
It is FREE of charge.
Wednesdays from 12.30-1.15pm. This class is led by our amazing Chair Yoga Instructor Pam! Call the Community House on 6352 2765 to book your spot as only limited places are available.
