Yoga For All!
It’s popular these days to say “yoga is for everybody.” But is that really true? Can it really be practiced by everyone? Even those who, due to age, inflexibility, or injury, need to practice completely from a chair?
In fact, seniors may be able to get more out of yoga than most students. Since the brain’s two hemispheres are used more equally as we age, we can bring a better overall awareness to yoga, thus utilizing the mind-body connection more effectively than younger students.
Keep in mind that many seniors who are physically fit have no limitations when it comes to practicing yoga, except maybe using the adaptation devices many younger people use as well, such as blocks or straps.
