Seniors Yoga classes
“Sometimes you have to forget what’s gone, appreciate what still remains and look forward to what’s yet to come”
One of the great things about yoga is that unlike most physical sports or disciplines you can start at any age. You don’t need to be physically fit or active to take up yoga. And there are few worries about competition or incurring physical injuries. If in doubt consult your GP for advice.
Whether you’re 55 or 85, it is never too late to take up a yoga class. Yoga is a very gentle and relaxing technique helping to release stiffness and tension from all parts of the body and is therefore ideal for people over a certain age.
Few people retain their strength and vitality in later years which makes yoga classes the ideal way to rejuvenate the body and revitalise the mind.
Yoga classes can improve the quality of life
Yoga can help people of all ages by providing increased flexibility and elasticity to the spine, firming up the skin, removing tension from the body, strengthening the abdominal muscles, improving the quality of muscle tone and correcting bad posture.
Yoga also helps to develop breathing techniques which enable us to deal with the demands of modern life from a calmer and considered perspective.
Thus stress can be drastically reduced and many symptoms of illnesses such as depression can be very much improved by practicing yoga on a regular basis.
Many benefits can be gained from attending a Yoga class as it can increase energy levels, flexibility and provide relief from the pain and discomfort of arthritis, back pain, neck problems, high blood pressure, sciatica, and asthma.
Many problems associated with ageing such as circulatory disorders, arthritis and digestive complaints are a result of lack of exercise, poor eating habits and shallow breathing. Yoga can help alleviate these common ailments by bringing the body back into balance and harmony.
