Description:

 

Many of these benefits are no different for seniors (55+). As we get older, muscles tend to stiffen, our joints lose their range of motion and we become more susceptible to chronic problems such as osteoporosis, arthritis and heart disease. Yoga can help slow down the effects of the ageing process by maintaining muscle softness and flexibility, keeping the mind alert and awake, encouraging relaxation and strengthening muscles and joints. Its multi-pronged approach can encourage the body, mind and spirit to remain healthy and strong while reducing the effects of many age-related issues.

 

If you are a senior, regular yoga practice (2-3 times/week) can play an important part in keeping you healthy, because yoga helps:

             Reduce swelling in joints

             Increase joint mobility and strength

             Improve balance and stability

             Reduce chances of having a fall

             Improve cardiovascular health

             Aid digestion and elimination

             Improve sleep

             Lower blood pressure and cholesterol

             Improve blood flow

             Improve mood and well-being

             Recovery from surgery

             Aid in the grieving process

             With depression and anxiety

 

Please bring a mat to each class. Door promptly shut at 1 PM. No late entry due to safety issues. We look forward to seeing you at Glazier!
