Yoga for Seniors
STAY STRONG, MOBILE & FLEXIBLE
ABOUT THE CLASS
Yoga for Seniors focuses on correct alignment as well as proper support for the needs of each student. We use various props to support the body, so that correct joint alignment is not compromised. Students learn to use the props for their own needs and whilst some may use a chair, others may go to the floor, some may sit cross legged, others may keep their legs straight etc...
We learn to listen to our bodies, and practise as deeply as we can, in a way that will continue to bring benefits, without going into pain or aggravating the condition.
We do a lot of standing and balancing poses to keep our legs strong, we move all our joints to maintain good range of movements, we open, lengthen, stretch our trunk to stay tall!
We do belly work for core strength and protect our backs, we do relaxation and breathing, we use chairs, straps, bolsters, blocks, wooden sticks, pads, the floor, the wall and partners and whatever else Corinne's imagination brings to class!
WHO IS IT FOR?
This class is most suitable if you are healthy and reasonably fit! Some yoga experience is required for this Seniors Yoga class.
This is a friendly and wonderful class with dedicated and beautiful students, many of whom have been attending regularly for some years. This class is suitable for older students but equally welcomes any students, who may require more support for their practice. For instance, if you are recovering from an illness or injury this class will help you to continue with your yoga practice in a way that will support your present condition.
Although challenging at times I really enjoy the classes. Corinne is very passionate about all aspects of yoga, she is an excellent teacher and is very caring and understanding with any aging or physical conditions the students may have. The props used and alternative poses are very helpful to everyone and allow for all student’s capabilities.
Yoga has not only helped me with my overall fitness, flexibility and learning to challenge myself but also with the mental aspect of learning to calm oneself.
