Health

Active Living is designed for those who want to improve general overall fitness, strength, flexibility and balance. Your tutor for this class is Lisa.

The class structure involves Warm Up, Stretching, Balance, Mild Cardio and Strength.

Most of the exercises can be broken down into levels – Lisa demonstrates the exercises so students can choose the easier level or go to the 2nd or 3rd level. Often, the class has a wide range of abilities, and Lisa likes to pitch it so that everyone is included.  As well, Students can opt out of an exercise if it’s going to aggravate and injury or for any other reason.

The exercises target deep muscles along with the superficial muscles. Lisa’s classes provide a full-body workout. She brings in a wide range of equipment and the participants frequently comment that no class is the same – there’s a lot of variety. The participants take the classes seriously – exercising makes them feel better and more alive and hopefully adding to longevity.

Lastly, the classes are fun- there’s a lot of laughing and at the same time a commitment to improving.

What to bring

Comfortable clothing.

What you get

Active Living aims to develop the following areas:
- Stretching to maintain flexibility - and good movement e.g: to avoid 'shuffling' when walking: stretching exercises lengthens the spine to avoid bad posture- in short stretching lengthens muscles that in ageing shrink
- Mild cardio to maintain healthy lungs and heart enhancing improved capacity when walking or running
- Balance exercises to build agility and quick responses to falling over
- Strength to build muscle tone and maintain and improve daily activities such as walking, cycling & gardening.

Important information

COVID-19 Update: Due to the current health guidelines, we are running our Term 2 classes remotely only (via ZOOM). By purchasing a ticket below, you will have access to the online class. Please contact us for further details.

Because we are currently running classes online, not everyone has equipment so Lisa will send out a session plan on Fridays with the equipment required for the class. On this plan, there are photos of homemade equipment - simple things like computer cables, cake tins to take the place of Thera Bands and Yoga Blocks and plastic bottles with pebbles inside for weights.
