Course Summary

The course provides a thorough body workout, with gentle and safe stretching, plus strengthening and energising exercises. Work at your own level in a non-competitive and encouraging atmosphere in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where your sense of wellbeing is enhanced through enjoyable and stress releasing exercise. Increase your ease of movement in everyday activities as well as greater body awareness that contributes to your quality of life.

Please speak to your tutor prior to the first session if you have any health concerns or if you are pregnant. Please wear comfortable clothing so you can move freely. You will be required to remove your shoes so you may wish to wear socks or bring some with you. Blankets and mats are provided, however you may prefer to bring your own. Change rooms are available.

For men and women who would like an alternative to aerobics and are looking to improve their fitness in a motivated yet relaxed atmosphere. Suitable for all ages, including older adults. For the less fit older adult who is looking for a gentler pace with no floor work, the Exercise with Ease course in the 50+ section may be more appropriate.

  • Gentle yoga-based stretches for suppleness and strength
  • Simple movement sequences for vitality and stamina
  • Floor exercises to improve muscular strength and control
  • Music to enhance the mood and enjoyment of each exercise
  • Body awareness and alignment
  • Relaxation and breathing
  • Exercises can be adapted to suit individual needs

Includes the ChiBall method to give you a more holistic approach to your wellbeing. The graceful and flowing movements of ChiBall will help you develop more energy, vitality and flexibility.

Liz Ede trained in dance at the Scottish Ballet School and Theatre School of Dance and Drama in Edinburgh but decided to spread her wings and travel to Germany, where she worked as an au pair while studying at the Berlin Opera Ballet School. While on a visit to relatives in Australia she fell in love with the country and decided to make it her home. In 1990 she returned to study fitness at Victoria University, specialising in older adults. Since then, Liz has been a regular tutor at CAE, as well as at various private and community classes in Melbourne such as Downtown Theatre Co., Studio 56, Hawthorn Community Mental Health Clinic, and Harold Holt Swim Centre. At the CAE, Liz has developed courses specifically for older adults utilising other disciplines (such as Yoga, Tai-Chi and Pilates) as well as bringing in ideas and knowledge from her dancing background.
