One big secret to growing older with confidence, dignity and style, is hidden in two words - Chair Yoga.
More than 20% of all yoga enthusiasts are 60 or older, and that number is steadily growing. It's not surprising to see why.
Yoga has a host of health benefits that improve the quality of life of older adults. It strengthens bones, improves balance and stability, enhances flexibility and joint health, and helps with mobility.
As a result, you'll be able to keep moving, stay independent, and continue doing the things you love to do, such as taking a walk outdoors, playing with your grandkids, or traveling the world, throughout your golden years.
An added benefit is the beautiful sense of tranquility that descends on you when doing yoga in any form. It can hone your mind into a level of focus, awareness, and calm, that has a positive knock-on effect on every part of your life.
But if you have physical limitations, you may be wondering if it's possible for you to do yoga.
Not to worry - you can still practice yoga and experience the numerous benefits it has to offer. And you don't need to do anything that's too active or physically challenging either.
There are forms of yoga that are very gentle on your body and easy to do... and you only need a chair to do it.
In this practical and helpful handbook, you will discover:
And much more.
None of the yoga movements in this book will require any great muscle strength or mobility. You can do these workouts at home, including exercises for beginners and more advanced practitioners. You can build up each pose slowly, gently, and at your own pace. The exercises are also perfect for group activities.
Yoga is for everyone, and as you continue your practice, you'll find that you're capable of so much more than you think.
Enjoy better health, higher strength, more confidence, and improved mobility with less pain. No matter where you are at, don't give up on yourself.
Keep living life to the fullest with chair yoga.
