Paracise exercise classes
Paracise is a new gentle exercise class, designed to improve mobility, flexibility and balance. Participants are encouraged to work at their own pace, and the classes contain no floor work, with all exercises carried out from a standing position.
Sessions last for 45 minutes, and the exercises are set to a playlist of great music that people might not usually associate with fitness and exercise classes. The aim of the class is to improve participants’ everyday lives through small improvements to their strength and flexibility.
Free Paracise video classes
Paracise have created a series of free online video exercise classes, so if you’re unable to get along to a class, or just prefer to get active in the comfort of your own home, you can still enjoy the benefits the class has to offer. Take a look at the link below to see some of the short, manageable workouts.
