Introduction to Yoga for Seniors

Regular exercise is essential for combating age-related illnesses, and yoga is a perfect, low-impact exercise for seniors. With its balance of strength and flexibility, it can be adapted to suit various fitness levels.

The Benefits of Yoga in Senior Years

Yoga can bring about a sense of peace, calm the mind, increase flexibility, and improve overall health. But there’s more; a consistent yoga practice can improve cardiovascular health, enhance respiratory efficiency, and manage chronic pain.

Yoga Poses for Strength and Flexibility

Here are some beneficial yoga poses for seniors, each designed to improve strength and flexibility. These poses can be modified as needed to accommodate individual abilities.

1. Mountain Pose (Tadasana)

This pose strengthens thighs, knees, and ankles, and improves posture. Stand tall, feet hip-width apart. Engage your thighs and elongate your torso. Breathe deeply and hold for 30 seconds to a minute.

2. Chair Pose (Utkatasana)

This powerful pose builds strength in the lower body. Begin in Mountain Pose, bend your knees, push your butt back as if sitting on a chair. Extend your arms overhead. Hold for up to a minute.

3. Warrior II (Virabhadrasana II)

Warrior II strengthens the legs and arms, and stretches the hips. From Mountain Pose, step one foot back, turn it out, bend your front knee, extend your arms out in line with your shoulders, gaze over your front hand. Hold for up to a minute.
