Welcome to ArthritisFirst

Specialising in tailor-made arthritis exercises on the Roseland Peninsula

Suitable for all ages and abilities, our arthritis exercise classes are held in St Mawes in Cornwall. The classes offer a variety of moves to increase strength and mobility and improve posture and balance.

Arthritis Exercise ClassWith 40 years of physiotherapy experience and the last 30 years spent in rehabilitation and arthritis management, I have chosen to be known as an exercise therapist.  I was diagnosed with arthritis in my teens and know from personal experience how the pain and stiffness of arthritis can affect our everyday lives and how exercise can improve these symptoms.

I have devised a variety of exercises, most of which involve sitting but if you are able to, there will be a chance to exercise for a short time standing.

Free taster classes are available to see if it suits your needs.

Do give me a call to discuss the classes further.


“I have discovered a whole new way of exercising from toes to neck which I never thought was possible! I always feel safe in the knowledge that Juliette understands arthritis, and is very watchful to make sure we don’t overdo it. And it’s fun too!”

“My body moves and functions much better as a result of Juliette’s class. I now have 3 friends who have joined the group.”
