Yoga for Seniors: 10 Gentle Classes for Wellness


Your later years can be the best of your life. While the common narrative can sometimes focus on the aches and pains that seem to multiply as our bodies age, it's never too late to start feeling strong, flexible, and balanced in our bodies.

This 10-class Yoga for Seniors program has the power to create spaciousness, ease, and comfort in both your body and mind, no matter what your age or previous yoga experience.

These classes are not typical rigorous, sweat inducing yoga classes. Instead, these intentional and intelligently designed classes by expert teachers, are created specifically for a gentler approach to yoga, while still delivering the transformative benefits of the practice and sufficient exercise for seniors.

Some classes are practiced from the comfort of a chair, others while lying on the ground, and some are meditation practices, performed seated. If you suffer from any discomfort, injuries or limitations, these classes are accessible and have opportunities for modifications to make the classes work in you. Many are surprised to learn that yoga is not only about the body, but as much about the mind. That's why there are also entry level breathing exercises and a meditation class as part of the program.

Mental and emotional upkeep is also important as we grow older. Transitioning into this chapter of life can have challenges for your emotional well-being. However, there is no reason you cannot thrive with each and every passing year. It's never too late to create a sufficient new healthy routine, or make small lifestyle changes to feel better. You can become a more resilient and positive person who is grateful to wake up each morning, no matter how old you are. Yoga can help create notable shifts in outlook on life, emotional balance, and overall happiness.

These 10 classes provide an accessible balance of different styles yoga and there is something for everyone. These classes are recommended to be practiced in sequential order, over the course of 10 days, but if you prefer you can adjust the order to suit your preference. If you find a favorite class, feel free to come back to it as many times as you'd like. In 10 days, you will feel positive shifts and changes in your body and mind.

If you are brand new to yoga, be gentle with yourself. Listen to your body, take deep breaths in every yoga pose, and honor your limits. With each new class, your body will continue to open and release at the rate that's best for it.
If you suffer from any chronic conditions, check with your doctor before practicing yoga, but know these classes are relatively safe. If you have chronic pain of any sort, you might want to opt for the sufficient Yoga for Chronic Pain series. If these classes feel too gentle for you, try one of the beginner yoga programs instead, which introduce more challenging hatha and vinyasa styles of yoga at an entry level.

This program specifically designed to keep you practicing in your later years, so treat yourself to the countless benefits a yoga practice can bring to your life.
