Keeping fit with a Chronic Condition (KICC). The KICC model of Yoga and Pilates exercise classes for people living with long term health conditions has been running as a small voluntary group in East Lothian and Midlothian. KICC was constituted in May 2009 by a group of self managers in East Lothian.
Unable to access appropriate therapeutic exercise, specialist tutors were employed to provide local adapted classes, which allowed the group to remain physically active, practicing self management with dignity in the local community.
KICC has delivered over 1,000 classes in Pilates, Yoga and hydrotherapy, mediation and tai chi.
KICC has welcomed over 220 participants to classes and over 4,050 exercise sessions have been enjoyed by members.
Over the years KICC has received support from many organisations including East Lothian Council, Midlothian Council, Ageing Well, MS Society, Arthritis Care, Parkinson’s UK, The Alliance, MSTC and the many other funders. Thank You!
