The NHS recommends that seniors should do activities that improve strength, balance and flexibility on at least 2 days a week.
Welcome to AMALAwellness, Young at Heart and Active for LIFE! – we run a range of exercise classes in Middlesbrough, Stockton and Guisborough.
We specialize in Gentle Yoga, Yoga for Seniors, Chair Based Exercise and meditation/relaxation. Every lesson we focus on these 3 key things that the NHS recommend.
Exercise for Seniors in Middlesbrough and Stockton
No matter what level, age or ability you are, we will have a class suitable for you, or can signpost you to relevant classes and services across Teesside.
Being active and and exercising can help you stay healthy, energetic and independent as you get older.
As we age, it becomes even more important to remain active if we want to stay healthy, social and maintain our independence.
If we do not take steps to stay fit, healthy and active , all the things we enjoy doing and taken for granted may start to become that little bit harder.
Keeping active means we can continue to enjoy lifes simple pleasures, such as:
- Playing with the grandchildren
- Walking to the shops
- Walking the dog
- Leisure activities
- Meeting up with friends and family
To name a few!
Stay active and maintain independence with our fun and social exercise classes.
The benefits of Exercise and Yoga for Seniors
Our classes help people stay:
– Healthy – Social – Flexible
– Active – Fit – Balanced
– Strong – Independent
They are also an asset to the local community, slowly developing more and more into a social hub where like-minded people can come together, get moving, learn something new and make new friends.
Just some of the physical benefits include:
- stretching the muscles, to reduce pain and stiffness.
- improves blood circulation to keep the body fresh and active.
- keeps control of blood pressure.
- improves the range of motion of the joints, keeping the symptoms of arthritis in control.
- Helps lift mood – reducing anxiety
- improves balance and coordination.
Our classes always include a short mindful practice and gentle breathwork at the beginning and end of the class, where we focus on the breath.
This helps to slow down breathing, helping the mind to be more clear and focused. It soothes the nervous system and invokes rest, relaxation and reduces stress and anxiety. Exercises in the class, especially chair based yoga and chair yoga flow also have a focus on the breath, which really helps with improving mental wellbeing too.
Yoga, Gentle Exercise and Meditation lessons have a myriad of benefits for those suffering with anxiety. For example, you can learn how to control your breathing and learn relaxation techniques which can be used in and out of class.
