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. I draw on all my 20 years practice and teaching yoga to deliver a safe yoga practice.
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.
