As we get older, muscles tend to stiffen, our joints lose their range of motion and we become more susceptible to chronic problems such as osteoporosis, arthritis and heart disease. Senior Yoga can help slow down the effects of the ageing process by maintaining muscle softness and flexibility, keeping the mind alert and awake, encouraging relaxation and strengthening muscles and joints. Its multi-pronged approach can encourage the body, mind and spirit to remain healthy and strong while reducing the effects of many age-related issues.

Senior Yoga Class Lead by lifetime yogi Tatyana Kochergina, she designed and introduced a series of chair yoga classes, making it accessible to everyone despite the challenges they face today.

Senior yoga class is all done in a chair. You would be surprised how much you can do! Tatyana shows you how you can stretch most of the major muscles of the upper body in a thorough and effective way.

Each class is designed to stretch and strengthen the lower body while sitting in a chair. In this chair yoga sequence, Tatyana shows you how it’s done. Using a strap, Tatyana shows you, step by step, how to stretch the back, front and sides of the legs, as well as the hips and lower back, which encourages blood flow to your feet and strengthens balance and body awareness.
