OUR CLASSES

Longevity Yoga for over 55’s

Tuesday & Wednesday 11.00am, Saturday 10.00am

As we move into our senior years, the practice of yoga can bring us health, flexibility (critical as we age) and vitality – all key factors in improving longevity.

For seniors, this means we can increase both our muscle strength and bone density and improve our posture, concentration and memory. Other benefits include the strengthening of our immune system and learning relaxation skills for the body and mind to assist with stress relief; and through all this, discover a sense of increased energy and a calmer mind.

Even if we may never be able to bend ourselves into a pretzel (which is not the goal!) learning some simple yoga poses can improve our overall quality of life. Getting older can come with some aches and pains, but the practice of yoga can strengthen the muscles that support our back and improve our core strength. Yoga assists in the healthy functioning of the digestive, circulatory, respiratory and other systems in the body.

As we age, it’s important to focus on doing what our bodies abilities or limitations tell us in a yoga class. So it’s not how much we can do, or not, rather than how it is we are doing the practice.

Above all, yoga helps us feel younger and more vital, leading to a happier and more fulfilling life.

These classes are specifically for those new to yoga or returning to their practice. We focus on particular areas, which may be affected by aging, such as the pelvic floor, eyes and core strength. This is yoga at a slower pace, using props to support and open the body, and ending with pranayama (yogic breathing), relaxation and a guided meditation.
