Yoga for Healthy Aging at Shanti Home
Yoga Seniors & 50+: this deeply relaxing, morning yoga class is slow & quite accessible to everyone. Newcomers are welcome at anytime & will easily be able to follow the class.
Firstly, we enjoy simple seated & lying poses that are intentionally led at a leisurely pace. As a result, you have lots of time to get settled into each pose.
Furthermore, we use lots of bolsters & cushions to support joints such as your hips, knees & ankles. This allows you to relax very comfortably in each pose for 2 – 5 minutes.
The benefits for seniors of practicing Yin yoga:
- keeps your joints lubricated & easy to move
- improves circulation by opening up blocked areas of the body
The class is based on Yin yoga; you don’t need to be flexible or have prior yoga experience.
