Using Pilates moves which are safe & can help prevent & decrease back pain. Focus is on posture & alignment, performing moves to strengthen core support muscles & stretch tight back muscles. For anyone who suffers with nagging lower back pain, muscular pain between the shoulder blades or who worries that their job or hobbies are starting to affect their posture & back. Also, for those who have been advised by a GP or Physiotherapist to do a gentle Pilates class. The ability to lie on a mat is required.
All classes are suitable for those new to exercise, looking for gentle exercise to improve their wellbeing and offer something a little more advanced for the more regular exerciser.
You will be able to book all classes from tomorrow, so watch this space!
Wow, that was a May to remember! We are in awe of the resilience shown by our customers, who usually attend our community based classes. In a bid to keep active, many have taken to the internet for the first time to take part in our virtual classes. We are so proud of you!
This is particularly important at the present time as falls are one of the main causes of hospitalisation for older people and we want to prevent the likelihood of this occurring whilst they are isolating.
If you know anyone who is a bit unsteady on their feet or could benefit from some gently daily exercise, please share this with them or their relatives so we can help as many older people as possible.
We have been informed by Age Concern, Hassocks that the centre is closing to outside clubs until further notice. Therefore all Wellbalanced classes held at Age Concern, Hassocks will be cancelled until further notice.
We plan to contact all participants and will keep in regular communication to offer our support throughout this period.
If you would like to receive home exercise handouts and a weekly call please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All other classes remain unaffected at this time. We will keep you informed of any further changes to our service.
If you can’t get to our classes here is a really useful guide to help you feel more steady on your feet. The leaflet is provided by saga.co.uk/falls in association with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and Public Health England (PHE). For more information visit the saga.co.uk/falls website.
