& Fall Prevention
Chair yoga/yoga provides many benefits for seniors or those with limited mobility, including:
Increased range of motion
Restores joint mobility & flexibility
Helps with stress relief
Strengthens joints & muscles
Improves foot health
Improved mental ability
Yoga easily adapts to the varied levels of fitness & flexibility of seniors. A simple straight backed chair can be used to help provide support, allowing anyone to participate & gain the enjoyment of regular exercise. When done in a small group setting this has the added benefit of creating a great environment to make new friendships.
