We are currently running three classes specifically to help you with these challenges. Our Monday Class is a more advanced FaME (Falls Management) class with progressive seated and standing exercises. Our Friday class called "Steady Steps graduates" is an intermediate class mainly for those who have completed the original Steady Steps introductory class or who wish to come to a lower intensity class than our Active Rehab classes. We currently run a free 24 week (half way through by end of year 2018) beginners class on Thursdays at 13:45 - 15:15. All three classes are tailored to individual needs and preferences, with an opportunity to socialise with tea and coffee afterwards.
