We are pleased to be able to offer free downloads of our own home exercise booklets. The text and illustrations are by two of our most senior tutors, Sheena Gawler and Simon Hanna, edited by Dawn Skelton, and the overall design (v2) by Helen Skelton.
We have four booklets that you can download – a home exercise booklet for those who attend postural stability instructor (PSI) led classes, a booklet to practice backward chaining (getting down to and up off the floor), a booklet for those who attend Otago strength and balance classes (OEP) and for those who attend Chair Based Exercise (CBE) Leaders classes.
If you need the PSI/OEP/CBE booklets in another EU language, you can visit the ProFouND website – home exercise booklets for the booklets in 12 different languages. Although all booklets are in colour, you can print in black and white.
These booklets may be printed or photocopied in their entirety without charge.
If distributed as printed material, no charge must be made for this reproduction or provision without the permission of Later Life Training.
Part content (graphics or text) must not be used, or reproduced in any other form without permission, in writing, from Later Life Training.
