About Old Age Yoga
One of the great things about yoga is that it is extremely adaptable to different populations with diverse physical abilities and needs. Old age yoga is specifically designed for the elderlies to strengthen their spine, back and legs. Usually elder people face issues like spinal injuries, slip disc problems, sleeping problems (insomnia), cardiovascular diseases, arthritis, diabetes, depression etc. With a combination of asanas, pranayama and meditation techniques we have created a program that helps them overcome all these issues and lead a more health and peaceful life.

All you need to bring are comfortable clothes and a good attitude. We do a variety of movements in a yoga class so your clothes should be able to move freely with you. Some classes may make you sweat so dress accordingly. We have mats, blocks, belts, and blankets to get you started if you have never practiced before.
No Problem! You can see someone in membership to discuss what you are looking for in a yoga class and they can guide you to the right class. Also, be sure to read our class descriptions so you can decide for yourself what works for you. We have plenty of gentle and all levels classes to get you started; both day and night!

First, check with your physician and make sure it is ok. It is also important for you to check in with the teacher before class if you have any concerns. All of our staff can help you by guiding you to the right class and the right props as well. Yoga is NO Competition! NO Comparison! We should not even compare how we did a pose the week before because every day is new. Listen to your body and if it says to back off then back off! No one is judging you, it’s your body, your practice.
