Fun with Scarves: Mobility Exercises

Cost: AU$40 | Duration: 1.5 hours

Scarves add something very unique to your workout, and you may just get your participants engaging in new ways, and exercising without even realising it! There are so many things that you can do with a scarf that will help improve strength, and co-ordination, and flexibility, in your older adult and senior clients.

We've put together here 50 fun scarf exercises that will challenge co-ordination, and that are safe and effective for your participants. Get them to bring along their own scarf and they'll be able to show a little side of their personality that you may not have seen before!

Included in the course:
• Video demonstrations of every exercise with all the tips and technique to teach confidently
• Handouts that list every exercise, to help you build your own training program
• Example scarf workout so you can see how Carol puts together different scarf exercises
• The benefits of adding a scarf to your workouts.

Scarves are lots of fun and add a whole new dimension to your exercises. Join our course so you'll have lots of ideas when you plan your next aged care or community class.

The course is 100% online with no video submissions required - assessment is an online multiple choice quiz. You can stop and start the course as many times as you need to, and you'll have access to the course content for 12 months.

A Course Manual is available for electronic download to guide you through the course. Keep your notes together in one place, refer back to our tips for teaching gentle exercise, and get handouts with full descriptions of every exercise so you don't forget variations and technique.
