Did you know that chair yoga is a great way for seniors to start doing yoga?
That’s right! Chair yoga is wonderful for all ages; the use of a chair during a yoga class allows for extra support while practicing. Chair yoga is is a great option for anyone who needs a bit of extra help when practicing, making it possible to get deeper into poses while doing them safely.
For those with past injuries or chronic pain, chair yoga might be the key to making a yoga practice doable.
Chair yoga for seniors offers many benefits. As we age, many suffer from poor posture, arthritis, lack of mobility, loss of strength and balance, and so much more. Yoga, even with a chair, can help to increase mobility by stretching out and opening up the muscles, promotes proper posture, enhances balance, strengthens muscles, and can even aid in decreasing discomfort from chronic pain.
You can see just how chair yoga is so helpful for people of all ages.
You can use a chair to modify a practice by holding it during standing and balancing poses, sitting in it for support, using the back of the chair to guide your posture, taking stress out of the joints, etc.
This mini routine is from Yoga Vitality, our 4-part yoga program for seniors to help with improved mobility, joint health, balance, pain relief, and injury prevention.
