This 30 minute, slow & gentle, modified yoga class, is performed seated. It is designed to be safe for older adults & seniors; including those with lower mobility levels; by modifying when necessary, to suit your own body.
My gentle workout may be used daily as a flexibility/exercise class for seniors; as a warm-up for older adults to help relieve stiffness, before vigorous exercises such as housework, or a long walk. Many will find it beneficial as a wonderful, full-body stretch at the END of your day! 🙂
Work at the level that is most suitable for you! – Modify exercises to feel comfortable at all times.
If you feel overexerted, SIT DOWN & continue to exercise gently if possible, while SEATED. – If you become DIZZY you MUST SIT DOWN & take a break or rest. – Have FUN & be proud of yourself for making your health a priority; you will feel better & better after every class you do!
Chair Yoga is a hot trend
According to a recent article in the New York Times, chair yoga is one of the hottest fitness trends for seniors. And it’s no wonder why. Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that can be done while seated or standing. It’s perfect for seniors who may not be able to stand for long periods of time or who want to avoid getting down on the floor.
Chair yoga is also highly adaptable, so it can be easily modified to fit any fitness level. And best of all, it’s a great way to get all the benefits of yoga without having to put too much strain on the body. So if you’re looking for a workout that’s easy on the joints and gentle on the body, chair yoga may be just what you’re looking for.
