Be takes Ageless Grace online and outdoors
November 19, 2020
Ageless Grace® is one of Be’s most popular social and wellness activities. Enjoyed by clients across many of our regions and prior to the pandemic, group sessions encouraged clients to come together at a community venue for a fun, simple health and fitness program.
Earlier this year when restrictions rolled out across the country our team began to explore ways to connect with clients and offer activities from the safety and comfort of home. North Brisbane Community Coordinator Jane Szach jumped at the opportunity to video stream Ageless Grace® sessions via Facebook Live. “I felt at the time it was so important to bring some fun, laughter and movement to our Facebook followers during this uncertain time,” Jane explained.
The program is accompanied with music and based on everyday movements that are natural and organic, performed best with barefeet, in a chair and clients enjoying singing along to their favourite songs.
As restrictions started to ease around Queensland many of our regions have been able to host small outdoor Ageless Grace® sessions at local parks under Be’s COVID Safe plan. Heidi from our Wide Bay team has been hosting small groups by the water at Bargara.
“Some Vitamin D, exercise and singing followed by morning tea has been a wonderful way to reconnect clients after months of social event restrictions,” said Wide Bay Community Coordinator Jodie Beck.
