Other information

This class works on people’s flexibility, strength, cardio and balance. Much of the mat work is Pilates based. The exercises and pace of the class are specifically designed for people over 55 in order to keep them active, independent and pain free for as long as possible.

We work slowly and carefully through the exercises and I provide detailed instructions and demonstrations of the exercise. I also provide regular feedback. Exercises can be adapted for people with special needs

REQUIREMENTS: Students need to be able to get down onto the floor and up again. They need to be able to follow physical instructions and/or copy the tutor’s movements.

TUTOR: Lorna is a retired physiotherapist who has provided exercise classes at U3APP for about 8 years. She is particularly interested in keeping older adults moving and strong so that they can maintain their independence and lifestyle.  She can modify exercises so that most people who attend the class can do the exercises she prescribes. Her aim is to provide a challenging and rewarding experience for all who attend.

Classes will be run on ZOOM on 13 July, 10 August, 14 September, 12 October, 9 November due to City of Port Phillip children’s immunisation program

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Go to the Courses & Enrolling page.
  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
