Yoga for Seniors

Yoga for seniors proves an important point.

You don’t need to be able to touch your toes to do yoga and you don’t need to be young.  Far from it in fact. Yoga can be practiced by anyone regardless of their age, physical abilities and body or health conditions. Theses classes are tailored to a senior yogi. We draw on all our 20 years teaching yoga to deliver a safe yoga practice.

Classes are sold in blocks of 6 weeks to make one course. Booking a course guarantees you a space.

6 good reasons to do yoga for seniors.


1. Improved Strength: yoga for seniors introduces adapted Yoga positions which help develop strength.


2. Improved Flexibility: yoga includes exercises which allow us to explore and develop movement around the joints.


3. Improved proprioception: proprioception is the sense of knowing where your body is in space and coordinating your movements accurately. 


4. Improved breath capacity: Within Yoga we practice breathing exercises that bring focus to the breath allowing it to deepen and lengthen.


5. Stress relief and relaxation: Working gently and mindfully with body and breath, relaxes the nervous system and lowers the stress response.

6. It’s social and fun too: it’s good to meet a small friendly group of people, yoga can be playful and energetic as well as peaceful.
