Zumba Gold is also offered to limited mobility clients in assisted living facilities, senior centers, nursing homes and retirement villages.
We modify the movement and some, most or all of the routines are performed while sitting in chairs (depending on the location). A typical class lasts anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes, depending on what's right for the particular class, with frequent breaks in between songs, so participants have a chance to recover.
My goal is to get people moving within their abilities and to keep them smiling and grooving to music they love and recognize. Although I use Latin & world music, just like in a more mobile Zumba Gold class, I also include a lot of tunes from yesteryear that participants will recognize and want to move to.
Zumba Gold, seated classes, when attended regularly, can help with:
- Muscle strength
- Mental awareness & functioning
- And so much more!
I have taught a wide variety of seated Zumba Gold classes, in many different settings. They were always the highlight of my week!
The joy I get from seeing my students' faces light up while they move, hum, sing and just groove to the music makes my job so rewarding!
And, we ALL work up a sweat. Mobility might be limited, but as my students always remind me, they're "still kicking!"
In one of my classes, we even stood for 2 or 3 songs (optional), so that they could practice balance and put a little more intensity into their workout, if they were able.
