Who is this course for?

This qualification was created specifically with carers and volunteers in mind to enhance the lives of those in retirement/ care homes through seated physical activity.

It also is a perfect addition to the skillset of the Exercise to Music Instructor as it is a very rewarding way of working without the same amount of personal physical activity required for a regular group exercise class.

  • Muscles
  • Heart
  • Lungs
  • Nerves
