How to Run Group Exercise Sessions for the Elderly

All exercises are good,we do them all,I was a dancer & play the Piano,the sitting on chairs go down well.hold legs up point toes down then up,down up.while legs are up twist ankles round & round each way.Gently,slowly raise arms up in front while breathing IN, lowering arms down Out,4 times. repeat to breathing IN, then move arms out to the sides holding the breath,breathing out with arms coming back to front & back down,4 times.Close eyes relax all muscles fold hands on lap,let shoulders drop,breath in &out a few times,this is the slowing down we use to finish Exercises.Use Music always, especially the old songs.
