You don't have to be a twenty-something in stretched lycra to benefit from yoga. Increasing numbers of middle aged people are discovering the benefits of the ancient practice.
These benefits are being increasingly proven by science – and arguably, those who stand to gain the most from yoga's advantages are the over-fifties.
The pose or asana element of a yoga practice focuses on strength, flexibility and balance, all three of which are important for physical well being in the later stages of life. The aim of Silver Yogis is to improve our level of strength, flexibility and balance by learning how to achieve an asana with the use of props, such as a chair, a foam block or a strap. Sometimes we'll use more than one!! This type of yoga practice helps to keep our bodies safe and it allows us to move towards the traditional asana.
