Yoga benefits the mind and body. As we age our bodies need help to maintain strength, remain supple and flexible to ward off or indeed reduce existing joint pain.
Manasa Yoga is beautifully presented and inspires those of us who are unfamiliar with the practice and benefits of yoga to take the time and opportunity to participate.
Megan Ward leads us through a program of gentle stretching and natural full breathing. The sessions are easy to follow and provide an emotional and physical sense of wellbeing. Visually we are lead through the program in the company of others, and feel a part of a yoga group - even though we are in our own home.
No particular level of fitness is required and all postures can be completed in a standing and/or seated position, making this program ideal for people in their mature years who wish to benefit from yoga exercise.
If you are a therapist supporting older clients, recommend this program to assist in your client's wellbeing and vitality. Yoga for the Mature Years offers people the opportunity to:
- Strengthen joints and tendons
- Increase circulation throughout the body
- Improve balance and co-ordination
- Increase energy and vitality
- release tension and bring about mental clarity.
