Yoga for Senior Citizens
Yoga is not a purely physical practice, there is flexibility to adapt one’s practice to meet one’s needs. This is a significant factor why yoga has become so popular with seniors. Yoga practices range from the physically demanding Power and Ashtanga yoga, to gentle Yin and chair yoga. It also encompasses conscious breathing and meditation exercises, providing practice options appropriate for those of limited mobility. Rakesh from Perform Yoga has developed senior specific practices, conducting studies that identify poses and techniques suitable to senior’s needs and bodies.
In short, there is a yoga practice available to you, no matter your age, nor your physical limitations.
