Take time for yourself and meet others while exercising in our new classes for carers (anyone aged 65+ or younger carers with a disability, illness or recovering). These exercises should help you feel more energetic, healthier and able to do everyday tasks more easily.

Otago strength and balance exercise classes

Join our new strength and balance exercise classes with Active Surrey. A series of 10 weekly sessions at Merrow Village Hall, Guildford  (July-September) with follow-up phone calls, and then two final sessions at Merrow in October.

Take time for yourself and meet other carers while exercising in our new classes to help you improve your physical skills with gentle standing and seated exercise. These sessions are for carers of any age with a physical disability, condition or illness affecting your physical health, including anyone recovering from treatment, as well as any carers aged 65+. Classes will help you feel more energetic, healthier and able to do everyday tasks more easily.

Face to face sessions run from Wednesday 7th July to Wednesday 8th September, then follow-up phone calls (15th, 22nd and 29th September) and finally back to Merrow Village Hall for two in-person sessions on 6th and 13th October.
