Chair Yoga for Seniors allows one to experience many benefits of an active lifestyle without risks.
Increased flexibility—Flexibility is essential in performing most of the daily tasks. Therefore, it’s important to stretch, bend and twist every day.
Muscle strength—Although gradual, chair yoga can help build muscle strength with each pose. This, in turn, improves mobility and balance and buffers your body against injury.
Better balance, coordination, and proprioception—Proprioception is the awareness of your body’s movements in space. In a chair yoga sequence, you’re required to transition from one pose to another, and this improves proprioception, which in turn enhances overall balance and coordination.
Reduced stress—Yoga inherently requires you to be mindful of your breathing and movement, shifting your focus off stressful thoughts. The movements are almost meditative and promote relaxation.
