Senior Exercise Program -  Chair Exercises

Chair Exercises with Sharon Lynch

Both Sharon Lynch and  videographer Steve Currie (who was masked & gloved)  are residents of Pictou County, Nova Scotia. The video was shot in an local empty Fire Hall. Before Covid, Sharon offered her classes every week in Westville, Trenton and Pictou, involving over 200 seniors. This video allows you to join her and many of her participants (now across the world) and be able to  continue to safely exercise on your own at home. Seniors are directed to start slowly and never mind what their neighbour (when in the same room) is doing – just do what you can do comfortably. It is a wellness essential!
