On this page you can find two sets of fully audio described exercise classes. These sessions are specifically designed for older people with visual impairments to do in the comfort of their own home.  The first set of 10 sessions are standing sessions, and the second set of 6 sessions are for people who wish to exercise whilst remaining seated.

To produce these exercise sessions Sight Support have worked with Ketyn, a local exercise instructor who specializes in working with older people. The sessions are designed to help with balance, stretching, muscle strengthening and cardio. 

All sessions are completely free for you to watch online or download.  If you live in the West of England region, we can also send these out to you on a pre-recorded USB stick for an audio player.

Please be aware that the content of these classes are intended to assist you and others in your personal wellness efforts. Nothing in these classes should be construed as personal advice or diagnosis, and must not be used in this manner. You should consult with your GP before beginning any exercise programme. If you feel unwell or unable to complete any of the exercises described, please stop and take the advice of a qualified health care professional.

We hope you enjoy the classes, and would welcome any feedback on them which would help us improve them for future users. Thank you.
