Physio Led Exercise Groups
LEGS (Local Exercise Groups for Stroke and neurological conditions) provides supported exercise groups led by physiotherapists for people who have had a stroke or live with a neurological condition.
One in six people in the UK has at least one neurological condition, with an estimated 11 million people living with a neurological disorder. These vary enormously; some are rapidly fatal, and others conditions cause a gradual decline in function.
We are an award-winning, registered charity, committed to providing accessible and affordable long term exercise groups for everyone, regardless of income, address or age. We run face to face classes in Notting Hill, Islington, Hanwell, Croydon, Barnet, Wandsworth and dozens of online classes.
Courses of varying intensities, including seated classes for people with mobility issues, Tai Chi, seated Tai Chi, Neuro Pilates, arm-only groups and higher intensity circuit based exercises. As well as the exercise groups, LEGS provides a community of support. We run a free weekly Neuro Café where participants, their families and carers join talks and education sessions on a variety of topics. Our specialist Physiotherapists provide signposting and advice on other services available to people with neurological conditions.
There is a small membership fee to join, and free places are available for people in financial hardship.
