As you add new exercises to keep class content fresh and engaging, it’s important to ensure the exercises are safe and within your scope of practice. As well as knowing what you can include, it’s equally vital to know what you shouldn’t include.
This CPD will cover exercises and movements that should be avoided by older adults so you can confidently create safe, effective and varied exercise sessions.
This will help you when choregraphing routines, adding new strength, flexibility or balance exercises, or devising games and activities.
The morning session has been devised with an NHS physiotherapist and will cover exercises that should be avoided, the reasons why and alternative options. For example, why should head rolling be avoided and what is a safer alternative.
The afternoon session will be a time to share exercises with the group. Each delegate will be asked to demonstrate a pre-prepared exercise or very short routine of their choice. This is not a formal assessment, but an opportunity to share and help each other so you leave with a whole raft of new ideas to refresh your repertoire.
