Stretch & Strengthen is a low-impact exercise series led by PSBC's own neuro physiotherapist, Shelly Yu, designed for those who prefer a slow-paced class. Exercises will start in a seated position and progress to standing, although there is an option to remain seated for the duration of the class. Participants can expect to focus on ranges of movement of the trunk, upper limbs, and lower limbs, in a strength-controlled manner. No equipment is needed for the class.
