Seated Exercises

Ref: C3743837

Students will copy exercises demonstrated by the instructor and go at their own pace. They will practice warm up stretches, co-ordination exercises, perform a head to toe seated workout, use balls and resistance bands for strength and endurance and use weights. Students will also engage in group activities to exercise their brain, through puzzles, quizzes, music games and other similar activities.
