Yoga for the Elderly

No one is ever too old to practice Yoga! Growing old makes one more vulnerable to different ailments that are linked to old age such as arthritis, rheumatism, incontinence and high blood pressure. Yoga is perhaps one of the most relaxing and ideal exercise, which is both easy and safe for practice by the seniors.

The UK DailyMail reported that elderly women showed measurable improvements in their walking speed and balance just after a nine week Yoga programme, and some even gained a centimetre in height.

The Telegraph has also reported that Yoga can fight ageing aches. Carmen O'Neill, 82, claims that "(she) walk(s) straighter, and taller. (She) feels (she has) got more mobility in (her) joints and - just as important - (she) meets other people, has a good time and chat. It's keeping (her) young."

Why enrol for the "Yoga for the Elderly" Course?
The degeneration of the body sets some limits to the types of exercises that the elderly can do. Yet, it is important for them to upkeep the body so that it functions well to prevent it from being susceptible to old age diseases. Sandhya Maarga Yoga instructors know exactly which Yogasanas (postures) are ideal for the people in such age group. So, grow old (or grow young) gracefully with Yoga practice.

Who can join this course?
People aged 55 and above.

**All Yoga courses at Sandhya Maarga Holistic Living Academy follow the 'term' system. For most of our courses, the course term lasts for approximately 3 months (12 weeks).
